I've got a patch that allows mozilla to work with execshield that's included in newer fedora / red hat releases. Simple, and wtc has aleady reviewed.
Created attachment 133952 [details] [diff] [review] patch to nspr and nss This just includes a new note section in the .s file so that the linker knows we're not executing off the stack. Should be safe for all versions of the various linkers.
Tested the patch on Red Hat Linux Advanced Server 2.1. Passed both NSPR and NSS tests. Patch checked into the NSPR tip (NSPR 4.5) and NSS tip (NSS 3.9). It will eventually show up in the cvs tag used by Mozilla trunk, most likely in Mozilla 1.6 beta.
