More i386 PaX MPROTECT fallout
As the first machines I booted with PaX MPROTECT active were completely
diskless, I didn't see any other fallout than the C/C++ compilers.
Once I booted a machine which uses local disk, it turns out that
'fsck_ffs' fails due to expecting to write to the text segment.
# paxctl +m /sbin/fsck_ffs
It still prints:
fsck_ffs: text relocations
but otherwise works now.
