My mistake. I guess the correct term would be machine in glibc nomenclature.

Is patch below more suitable? We would have a common _dl_exec_stack_override
that would (preferably) not be overridden by the machine support, but instead one can define
DL_EXEC_STACK_OVERRIDE or maybe  DL_EXEC_STACK_OVERRIDE_P to control 
the conditions under which the stack "override" happens. 

I realized that I don't actually need to duplicate the __stack_prot unprotect/protect code from
elf/dl-load.c, so I moved the dynamic linking case into dl-main. This way the version check is done
at most once.

Static linking case is still done as part of _dl_non_dynamic_init. If we ever gain support for IFUNC
on MIPS we would probably need to move this somewhere before running IFUNC revolvers.

What are your thoughts on this?
