<blockquote><i>a longstanding x86 security weakness will be no more.</i></blockquote> Well, at least for those running x86-64 machines. The masses of us still running plain old 32-bit x86 machines get no joy.

- make sure you have a CPU that has the NX feature. Such CPUs are:
all 64-bit variants of AMD (Athlon64, Opteron), future CPUs of
Intel, Transmeta and VIA. (NOTE: 64-bit x86_64 kernels already
make use of the 64-bit variant of the NX feature - this patch
is only meant for 32-bit x86 kernels and distributions.)
