  1. It would be nice if NVIDIA made open source drivers or published more information, so that (in theory) more open source developers could work on it.

    It could be licensing rules prevent it, or some other aspect we’re totally unaware of.

  2. OpenBSD had W^X on i386 before using segmentation, but now there’s a new PAE pmap which will allow finer grained protection using the hardware NX (..or XD) bit.

  3. OpenBSD on amd64, and other architectures with similar MMU features, already use the “No eXecute” bit.
