GCC is a GNU project, not a Linux project...

Hopefully you understand we can't always fix things other people
deliberately break.  And what is more important to me is that we need
a solid and stable codebase first, one that most regular contributors
are happy with.

In that case we should figure out how to fix this.  But apple didn't
just disable the execution on the stack, they fucked up the compiler.
