I thought I would find what those "other reasons" are, but there aren't. It seems the advisory confirms that this bug WAS the reason that the author decided to abandon it.

Does it mean that the author realized the PaX design was fundamentally flawed in the current kernel, anyway?

the other reasons are private matter, if they weren't, they would be public knowledge. as for the "PaX design was fundamentally flawed in the current kernel", what are you talking about? to my knowledge, there're no design errors in PaX, only implementation ones. if you know otherwise, you know where to contact me or let the world know (if for no other reason than to make things better).
