Patches for read only memory segments and elf header frames, compliments of
redhat and Gnu.
These provide -z relro to ld, and adds "GNU_RELRO" under "Program Headers:"
from readelf -l output. These patches aren't necessary for anything, but
making memory segments read only and relocateable would certainly make
exploits more complicated to achieve.
>From what I understand, to use Pax soft mode, the toolchain will need PT_GNU
patches as well. One each for gcc, glibc, and binutils.
