Without the GNU-stack section the
linker reverts to its backwards-compatible default which is to make
the stack executable.

 Oh! That's interesting, and actually makes sense. Well, I guess
we've found a reason for the existence of the .note.GNU-stack section,
and stripping it is not as free a win today as it was 20 years ago. :)

 Thanks for the investigation and the patch. Making those strips less
greedy is clearly the correct solution.
