            Bug ID: 35739
           Summary: compiler-rt: files contain writable and executable
           Product: compiler-rt
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW

         Component: compiler-rt
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: willwiemann at fake-box.com

My Linux system detected some writeable and executable sections in the files


I do not understand entirely why this is the case. However, I'm not alone with
this  (see related issues by other projects).

This is what I've found out so far.

The commit [1] fixed part of this but did not cover {i386,x86_64}/chkstk.S,
{i386,x86_64}/chkstk2.S. The reason might be that NO_EXEC_STACK_DIRECTIVE is a
NO-OP on Windows and according to the comments in the files chkstk.S and
chkstk2.S are windows only. This impression is supported by
lib/builtin/CMakeFiles.txt which explicitly includes these files as additional
x86_64_SOURCES (line 247).
However, these files are already included in x86_64_SOURCES (same for
i386_SOURCES). This was done by commit [2]. Looking at this commit more
closely, it  adds chkstk.S and chkstk2.S unconditionally even though they were
conditionally included. My guess is that these files were added accidentally by
[2] and should only be compiled on Windows.
