Subject: [SDL] exec stack in libsdl update

i posted back in September a patch to remove executable stacks:
http://www.devolution.com/pipermail/sdl/2005-September/070626.html

later in November, a similar patch was merged it seems:
http://www.libsdl.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/SDL12/src/hermes/mmx_main.asm

however, this lacks the additional output format checks that i posted in my
patch ... this isnt a problem if the hermes asm code is only ever used to
produce ELF objects, but if this is not true, then the additional checks in
my original patch will need to be merged

			    Preamble
slouken@0
    13
slouken@0
    14
  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
slouken@0
    15
freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
slouken@0
    16
Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change
slouken@0
    17
free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.
slouken@0
    18
slouken@0
    19
  This license, the Library General Public License, applies to some
slouken@0
    20
specially designated Free Software Foundation software, and to any
slouken@0
    21
other libraries whose authors decide to use it.  You can use it for
slouken@0
    22
your libraries, too.
slouken@0
    23
slouken@0
    24
  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
slouken@0
    25
price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
slouken@0
    26
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
slouken@0
    27
this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
slouken@0
    28
if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
slouken@0
    29
in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
slouken@0
    30
slouken@0
    31
  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
slouken@0
    32
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
slouken@0
    33
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if
slouken@0
    34
you distribute copies of the library, or if you modify it.
slouken@0
    35
slouken@0
    36
  For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether gratis
slouken@0
    37
or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that we gave
slouken@0
    38
you.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source
slouken@0
    39
code.  If you link a program with the library, you must provide
slouken@0
    40
complete object files to the recipients so that they can relink them
slouken@0
    41
with the library, after making changes to the library and recompiling
slouken@0
    42
it.  And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.
slouken@0
    43
slouken@0
    44
  Our method of protecting your rights has two steps: (1) copyright
slouken@0
    45
the library, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal
slouken@0
    46
permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.
slouken@0
    47
slouken@0
    48
  Also, for each distributor's protection, we want to make certain
slouken@0
    49
that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
slouken@0
    50
library.  If the library is modified by someone else and passed on, we
slouken@0
    51
want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original
slouken@0
    52
version, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on
slouken@0
    53
the original authors' reputations.
slouken@0
    54

slouken@0
    55
  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
slouken@0
    56
patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that companies distributing free
slouken@0
    57
software will individually obtain patent licenses, thus in effect
slouken@0
    58
transforming the program into proprietary software.  To prevent this,
slouken@0
    59
we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's
slouken@0
    60
free use or not licensed at all.
slouken@0
    61
slouken@0
    62
  Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the ordinary
slouken@0
    63
GNU General Public License, which was designed for utility programs.  This
slouken@0
    64
license, the GNU Library General Public License, applies to certain
slouken@0
    65
designated libraries.  This license is quite different from the ordinary
slouken@0
    66
one; be sure to read it in full, and don't assume that anything in it is
slouken@0
    67
the same as in the ordinary license.
slouken@0
    68
slouken@0
    69
  The reason we have a separate public license for some libraries is that
slouken@0
    70
they blur the distinction we usually make between modifying or adding to a
slouken@0
    71
program and simply using it.  Linking a program with a library, without
slouken@0
    72
changing the library, is in some sense simply using the library, and is
slouken@0
    73
analogous to running a utility program or application program.  However, in
slouken@0
    74
a textual and legal sense, the linked executable is a combined work, a
slouken@0
    75
derivative of the original library, and the ordinary General Public License
slouken@0
    76
treats it as such.
slouken@0
    77
slouken@0
    78
  Because of this blurred distinction, using the ordinary General
slouken@0
    79
Public License for libraries did not effectively promote software
slouken@0
    80
sharing, because most developers did not use the libraries.  We
slouken@0
    81
concluded that weaker conditions might promote sharing better.
slouken@0
    82
slouken@0
    83
  However, unrestricted linking of non-free programs would deprive the
slouken@0
    84
users of those programs of all benefit from the free status of the
slouken@0
    85
libraries themselves.  This Library General Public License is intended to
slouken@0
    86
permit developers of non-free programs to use free libraries, while
slouken@0
    87
preserving your freedom as a user of such programs to change the free
slouken@0
    88
libraries that are incorporated in them.  (We have not seen how to achieve
slouken@0
    89
this as regards changes in header files, but we have achieved it as regards
slouken@0
    90
changes in the actual functions of the Library.)  The hope is that this
slouken@0
    91
will lead to faster development of free libraries.
slouken@0
    92
slouken@0
    93
  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
slouken@0
    94
modification follow.  Pay close attention to the difference between a
slouken@0
    95
"work based on the library" and a "work that uses the library".  The
slouken@0
    96
former contains code derived from the library, while the latter only
slouken@0
    97
works together with the library.
slouken@0
    98
slouken@0
    99
  Note that it is possible for a library to be covered by the ordinary
slouken@0
   100
General Public License rather than by this special one.

   102
		  GNU LIBRARY GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
slouken@0
   103
   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
slouken@0
   104
slouken@0
   105
  0. This License Agreement applies to any software library which
slouken@0
   106
contains a notice placed by the copyright holder or other authorized
slouken@0
   107
party saying it may be distributed under the terms of this Library
slouken@0
   108
General Public License (also called "this License").  Each licensee is
slouken@0
   109
addressed as "you".
slouken@0
   110
slouken@0
   111
  A "library" means a collection of software functions and/or data
slouken@0
   112
prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application programs
slouken@0
   113
(which use some of those functions and data) to form executables.
slouken@0
   114
slouken@0
   115
  The "Library", below, refers to any such software library or work
slouken@0
   116
which has been distributed under these terms.  A "work based on the
slouken@0
   117
Library" means either the Library or any derivative work under
slouken@0
   118
copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Library or a
slouken@0
   119
portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated
slouken@0
   120
straightforwardly into another language.  (Hereinafter, translation is
slouken@0
   121
included without limitation in the term "modification".)
slouken@0
   122
slouken@0
   123
  "Source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work for
slouken@0
   124
making modifications to it.  For a library, complete source code means
slouken@0
   125
all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated
slouken@0
   126
interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation
slouken@0
   127
and installation of the library.
slouken@0
   128
slouken@0
   129
  Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
slouken@0
   130
covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
slouken@0
   131
running a program using the Library is not restricted, and output from
slouken@0
   132
such a program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based
slouken@0
   133
on the Library (independent of the use of the Library in a tool for
slouken@0
   134
writing it).  Whether that is true depends on what the Library does
slouken@0
   135
and what the program that uses the Library does.
slouken@0
   136
  
slouken@0
   137
  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library's
slouken@0
   138
complete source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that
slouken@0
   139
you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an
slouken@0
   140
appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact
slouken@0
   141
all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any
slouken@0
   142
warranty; and distribute a copy of this License along with the
slouken@0
   143
Library.
slouken@0
   144
slouken@0
   145
  You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy,
slouken@0
   146
and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a
slouken@0
   147
fee.
slouken@0
   148

slouken@0
   149
  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any portion
slouken@0
   150
of it, thus forming a work based on the Library, and copy and
slouken@0
   151
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
slouken@0
   152
above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
slouken@0
   153
slouken@0
   154
    a) The modified work must itself be a software library.
slouken@0
   155
slouken@0
   156
    b) You must cause the files modified to carry prominent notices
slouken@0
   157
    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
slouken@0
   158
slouken@0
   159
    c) You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at no
slouken@0
   160
    charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
slouken@0
   161
slouken@0
   162
    d) If a facility in the modified Library refers to a function or a
slouken@0
   163
    table of data to be supplied by an application program that uses
slouken@0
   164
    the facility, other than as an argument passed when the facility
slouken@0
   165
    is invoked, then you must make a good faith effort to ensure that,
slouken@0
   166
    in the event an application does not supply such function or
slouken@0
   167
    table, the facility still operates, and performs whatever part of
slouken@0
   168
    its purpose remains meaningful.
slouken@0
   169
slouken@0
   170
    (For example, a function in a library to compute square roots has
slouken@0
   171
    a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the
slouken@0
   172
    application.  Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any
slouken@0
   173
    application-supplied function or table used by this function must
slouken@0
   174
    be optional: if the application does not supply it, the square
slouken@0
   175
    root function must still compute square roots.)
slouken@0
   176
slouken@0
   177
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
slouken@0
   178
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Library,
slouken@0
   179
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
slouken@0
   180
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
slouken@0
   181
sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
slouken@0
   182
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
slouken@0
   183
on the Library, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
slouken@0
   184
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
slouken@0
   185
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote
slouken@0
   186
it.
slouken@0
   187
slouken@0
   188
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
slouken@0
   189
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
slouken@0
   190
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
slouken@0
   191
collective works based on the Library.
slouken@0
   192
slouken@0
   193
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Library
slouken@0
   194
with the Library (or with a work based on the Library) on a volume of
slouken@0
   195
a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
slouken@0
   196
the scope of this License.
slouken@0
   197
slouken@0
   198
  3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public
slouken@0
   199
License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library.  To do
slouken@0
   200
this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so
slouken@0
   201
that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2,
slouken@0
   202
instead of to this License.  (If a newer version than version 2 of the
slouken@0
   203
ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can specify
slouken@0
   204
that version instead if you wish.)  Do not make any other change in
slouken@0
   205
these notices.
slouken@0
   206

slouken@0
   207
  Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for
slouken@0
   208
that copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies to all
slouken@0
   209
subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy.
slouken@0
   210
slouken@0
   211
  This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of
slouken@0
   212
the Library into a program that is not a library.
slouken@0
   213
slouken@0
   214
  4. You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or
slouken@0
   215
derivative of it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form
slouken@0
   216
under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you accompany
slouken@0
   217
it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which
slouken@0
   218
must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a
slouken@0
   219
medium customarily used for software interchange.
slouken@0
   220
slouken@0
   221
  If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy
slouken@0
   222
from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the
slouken@0
   223
source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to
slouken@0
   224
distribute the source code, even though third parties are not
slouken@0
   225
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
slouken@0
   226
slouken@0
   227
  5. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the
slouken@0
   228
Library, but is designed to work with the Library by being compiled or
slouken@0
   229
linked with it, is called a "work that uses the Library".  Such a
slouken@0
   230
work, in isolation, is not a derivative work of the Library, and
slouken@0
   231
therefore falls outside the scope of this License.
slouken@0
   232
slouken@0
   233
  However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the Library
slouken@0
   234
creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library (because it
slouken@0
   235
contains portions of the Library), rather than a "work that uses the
slouken@0
   236
library".  The executable is therefore covered by this License.
slouken@0
   237
Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.
slouken@0
   238
slouken@0
   239
  When a "work that uses the Library" uses material from a header file
slouken@0
   240
that is part of the Library, the object code for the work may be a
slouken@0
   241
derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not.
slouken@0
   242
Whether this is true is especially significant if the work can be
slouken@0
   243
linked without the Library, or if the work is itself a library.  The
slouken@0
   244
threshold for this to be true is not precisely defined by law.
slouken@0
   245
slouken@0
   246
  If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data
slouken@0
   247
structure layouts and accessors, and small macros and small inline
slouken@0
   248
functions (ten lines or less in length), then the use of the object
slouken@0
   249
file is unrestricted, regardless of whether it is legally a derivative
slouken@0
   250
work.  (Executables containing this object code plus portions of the
slouken@0
   251
Library will still fall under Section 6.)
slouken@0
   252
slouken@0
   253
  Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may
slouken@0
   254
distribute the object code for the work under the terms of Section 6.
slouken@0
   255
Any executables containing that work also fall under Section 6,
slouken@0
   256
whether or not they are linked directly with the Library itself.
slouken@0
   257

slouken@0
   258
  6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also compile or
slouken@0
   259
link a "work that uses the Library" with the Library to produce a
slouken@0
   260
work containing portions of the Library, and distribute that work
slouken@0
   261
under terms of your choice, provided that the terms permit
slouken@0
   262
modification of the work for the customer's own use and reverse
slouken@0
   263
engineering for debugging such modifications.
slouken@0
   264
slouken@0
   265
  You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that the
slouken@0
   266
Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are covered by
slouken@0
   267
this License.  You must supply a copy of this License.  If the work
slouken@0
   268
during execution displays copyright notices, you must include the
slouken@0
   269
copyright notice for the Library among them, as well as a reference
slouken@0
   270
directing the user to the copy of this License.  Also, you must do one
slouken@0
   271
of these things:
slouken@0
   272
slouken@0
   273
    a) Accompany the work with the complete corresponding
slouken@0
   274
    machine-readable source code for the Library including whatever
slouken@0
   275
    changes were used in the work (which must be distributed under
slouken@0
   276
    Sections 1 and 2 above); and, if the work is an executable linked
slouken@0
   277
    with the Library, with the complete machine-readable "work that
slouken@0
   278
    uses the Library", as object code and/or source code, so that the
slouken@0
   279
    user can modify the Library and then relink to produce a modified
slouken@0
   280
    executable containing the modified Library.  (It is understood
slouken@0
   281
    that the user who changes the contents of definitions files in the
slouken@0
   282
    Library will not necessarily be able to recompile the application
slouken@0
   283
    to use the modified definitions.)
slouken@0
   284
slouken@0
   285
    b) Accompany the work with a written offer, valid for at
slouken@0
   286
    least three years, to give the same user the materials
slouken@0
   287
    specified in Subsection 6a, above, for a charge no more
slouken@0
   288
    than the cost of performing this distribution.
slouken@0
   289
slouken@0
   290
    c) If distribution of the work is made by offering access to copy
slouken@0
   291
    from a designated place, offer equivalent access to copy the above
slouken@0
   292
    specified materials from the same place.
slouken@0
   293
slouken@0
   294
    d) Verify that the user has already received a copy of these

  For an executable, the required form of the "work that uses the
slouken@0
   298
Library" must include any data and utility programs needed for
slouken@0
   299
reproducing the executable from it.  However, as a special exception,
slouken@0
   300
the source code distributed need not include anything that is normally
slouken@0
   301
distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
slouken@0
   302
components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on
slouken@0
   303
which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies
slouken@0
   304
the executable.
slouken@0
   305
slouken@0
   306
  It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license
slouken@0
   307
restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do not normally
slouken@0
   308
accompany the operating system.  Such a contradiction means you cannot
slouken@0
   309
use both them and the Library together in an executable that you
slouken@0
   310
distribute.
slouken@0
   311

   312
  7. You may place library facilities that are a work based on the
slouken@0
   313
Library side-by-side in a single library together with other library
slouken@0
   314
facilities not covered by this License, and distribute such a combined
slouken@0
   315
library, provided that the separate distribution of the work based on
slouken@0
   316
the Library and of the other library facilities is otherwise
slouken@0
   317
permitted, and provided that you do these two things:
slouken@0
   318
slouken@0
   319
    a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work
slouken@0
   320
    based on the Library, uncombined with any other library
slouken@0
   321
    facilities.  This must be distributed under the terms of the
slouken@0
   322
    Sections above.
slouken@0
   323
slouken@0
   324
    b) Give prominent notice with the combined library of the fact
slouken@0
   325
    that part of it is a work based on the Library, and explaining
slouken@0
   326
    where to find the accompanying uncombined form of the same work.
slouken@0
   327
slouken@0
   328
  8. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute
slouken@0
   329
the Library except as expressly provided under this License.  Any
slouken@0
   330
attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or
slouken@0
   331
distribute the Library is void, and will automatically terminate your
slouken@0
   332
rights under this License.  However, parties who have received copies,
slouken@0
   333
or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses
slouken@0
   334
terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
slouken@0
   335
slouken@0
   336
  9. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
slouken@0
   337
signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
slouken@0
   338
distribute the Library or its derivative works.  These actions are
slouken@0
   339
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
slouken@0
   340
modifying or distributing the Library (or any work based on the
slouken@0
   341
Library), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
slouken@0
   342
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
slouken@0
   343
the Library or works based on it.
slouken@0
   344
slouken@0
   345
  10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work based on the
slouken@0
   346
Library), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
slouken@0
   347
original licensor to copy, distribute, link with or modify the Library
slouken@0
   348
subject to these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
slouken@0
   349
restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
slouken@0
   350
You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
slouken@0
   351
this License.
slouken@0
   352

slouken@0
   353
  11. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
slouken@0
   354
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
slouken@0
   355
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
slouken@0
   356
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
slouken@0
   357
excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
slouken@0
   358
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
slouken@0
   359
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
slouken@0
   360
may not distribute the Library at all.  For example, if a patent
slouken@0
   361
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Library by
slouken@0
   362
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
slouken@0
   363
the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
slouken@0
   364
refrain entirely from distribution of the Library.
slouken@0
   365
slouken@0
   366
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any
slouken@0
   367
particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply,
slouken@0
   368
and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
slouken@0
   369
slouken@0
   370
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
slouken@0
   371
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
slouken@0
   372
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
slouken@0
   373
integrity of the free software distribution system which is
slouken@0
   374
implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
slouken@0
   375
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
slouken@0
   376
through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
slouken@0
   377
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
slouken@0
   378
to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
slouken@0
   379
impose that choice.
slouken@0
   380
slouken@0
   381
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
slouken@0
   382
be a consequence of the rest of this License.
slouken@0
   383
slouken@0
   384
  12. If the distribution and/or use of the Library is restricted in
slouken@0
   385
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
slouken@0
   386
original copyright holder who places the Library under this License may add
slouken@0
   387
an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries,
slouken@0
   388
so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus
slouken@0
   389
excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if
slouken@0
   390
written in the body of this License.
slouken@0
   391
slouken@0
   392
  13. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new
slouken@0
   393
versions of the Library General Public License from time to time.
slouken@0
   394
Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version,
slouken@0
   395
but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
slouken@0
   396
slouken@0
   397
Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Library
slouken@0
   398
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and
slouken@0
   399
"any later version", you have the option of following the terms and
slouken@0
   400
conditions either of that version or of any later version published by
slouken@0
   401
the Free Software Foundation.  If the Library does not specify a
slouken@0
   402
license version number, you may choose any version ever published by
slouken@0
   403
the Free Software Foundation.
slouken@0
   404

slouken@0
   405
  14. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Library into other free
slouken@0
   406
programs whose distribution conditions are incompatible with these,
slouken@0
   407
write to the author to ask for permission.  For software which is
slouken@0
   408
copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free
slouken@0
   409
Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this.  Our
slouken@0
   410
decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status
slouken@0
   411
of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing
slouken@0
   412
and reuse of software generally.
slouken@0
   413
slouken@0
   414
			    NO WARRANTY
slouken@0
   415
slouken@0
   416
  15. BECAUSE THE LIBRARY IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO
slouken@0
   417
WARRANTY FOR THE LIBRARY, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
slouken@0
   418
EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR
slouken@0
   419
OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE LIBRARY "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY
slouken@0
   420
KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
slouken@0
   421
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
slouken@0
   422
PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
slouken@0
   423
LIBRARY IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE LIBRARY PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME
slouken@0
   424
THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
slouken@0
   425
slouken@0
   426
  16. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN
slouken@0
   427
WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY
slouken@0
   428
AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE LIBRARY AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU
slouken@0
   429
FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
slouken@0
   430
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE
slouken@0
   431
LIBRARY (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
slouken@0
   432
RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A
slouken@0
   433
FAILURE OF THE LIBRARY TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER SOFTWARE), EVEN IF
slouken@0
   434
SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
slouken@0
   435
DAMAGES.
