Hmm, the XATTR_PAX kernel configuration option does not exist in the
kernel sources I'm using; I haven't applied any hardening or Grsecurity
patches, it's just the upstream Linux-libre 4.18 kernel, built with:

make powernv_defconfig

I guess I could experiment with adding the PaX patches to my kernel so
that XATTR_PAX would take effect, but I'm surprised Emacs can't complete
the bootstrap step when the kernel is in a default configuration.
