PaX team does not provide official support for 2.6 kernel considering them
unstable development version. Emergency like this - moving from PaX to
ExecShield and back will only calm down you but will not provide any
security. That is because ExecShield protections can be bypassed and ways
of doing this are known. It is advised to stay with stable series (2.4
kernels) on most important machines.
