Subject: Re: Using x86 segments against NULL pointer deference exploit


I'm wondering why on architectures that actually have EXECUTE
permission memory management, the user space is mapped into kernel
with EXECUTE enabled!!!??

If the user space were not mapped with EXECUTE enabled, the
restriction of mapping the 0-page in user space is not required
anymore.
