A change like this was made in HFI with:

commit 12220267645cb7d1f3f699218e0098629e932e1f
IB/hfi: Protect against writable mmap

This caused user applications that use the stack for execution to fail.
The VM_EXEC flag is passed down during mmaps.

We had to remove this patch with:

commit 7709b0dc265f28695487712c45f02bbd1f98415d
IB/hfi1: Remove overly conservative VM_EXEC flag check

to resolve this issue.

I am not sure if this is an equivalent issue, but the code path
appears very similar.

Testing with applications that set the EXECSTACK bit will show if this
is an issue.
