DESCRIPTION
       This  program attempts to determine if the running x86-based CPU has NX
       capabilities (regardless of it being disabled by the BIOS).

       If the CPU is NX-capable but the nx bit is missing from flags,  exit  1
       (i.e.  "BIOS  settings need changing"), otherwise exit 0 (i.e. "nothing
       wrong with BIOS")
