When playing with a default raspbian, @diouziou and I noticed that every stack, no matter if compiled with NX or not, is marked as executable.

This is the same problem as with the old libcofi_rpi, where some stack markings where missing. The ASM lines to fix this are added to nearly all files in this lib, but not in architecture.S.

$ scanelf -e 

This is for example responsible for nearly all binaries in raspbian to ignore NX. The fix will ensure that the correct stack markings are set.

$ scanelf -e
