[Qemu-block] [PATCH v2 03/18] tests/vm/openbsd: Disable the W^X protecti

From: Philippe Mathieu-Daudé
Subject: [Qemu-block] [PATCH v2 03/18] tests/vm/openbsd: Disable the W^X protection on the build partition
Date: Tue, 29 Jan 2019 18:53:48 +0100

Since OpenBSD 6.0 [1], W^X is enforced by default [2].
TCG requires WX access, and QEMU binaries are now built with the WX
flag to disable the protection. However, WX allowed binaries need
to be run on a WX allowed partition.
To be able to run the QEMU test suite on the VM, mount the partition
where QEMU is built/tested as WX allowed.
