- * Set READ_IMPLIES_EXEC if:

- *  - we're running on a CPU which doesn't support NX.
+ * An executable for which elf_read_implies_exec() returns TRUE will
+ * have the READ_IMPLIES_EXEC personality flag set automatically.
+ *
+ * The decision process for determining the results are:
+ *

+ *  exec-none : only PROT_EXEC user mappings are executable.

+ *  *this column has no architectural effect: NX markings are ignored by
