[PyPy-issue] [issue610] The generated pypy binary is unnecessarily flagged as needing an executable stack

Reading the gcc documentation, it looks like it would be a mess to write a
function in C that turns to some exact piece of assembler (with no prologue or
epilogue).  Closing as "wontfix" for now.  You are free of course to add
"execstack" to the PyPy build system on Fedora, or to propose a patch that adds
the magic line to gcmaptable.s if done carefully enough (e.g. by checking that
the same line was used in another .s file), or even maybe that compiles the .s
file not alone but #included from another .lbl.s file (obscure workaround).

status: chatting -> wontfix
