PaX regression test suite

Official package sites : ·

Test suite for the PaX kernel patch PaX is a Linux kernel patch which adds much stricter control on how memory is being used by applications. A normal Linux kernel leaves the control to the application and does not implement any enforcement. Especially buffer overflow attacks benefit from the absense of kernel enforced memory control. PaX tries to do its best to enforce this control of memory used by applications, thereby making it harder to succesfully exploit buffer overflows. Furthermore, it adds several randomisations, which also make it harder for buffer overflows to succeed. The test programs test all this functionality, but not all PaX functionality is covered. For more information about PaX, see

proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H.
