[libvirt] [PATCH 0/2] Improve security hardening of binaries



Fedora has a "hardened build" option in RPM specfiles:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#PIE

While we could enable that in the RPM, this would only
apply to Fedora. Thus these patches directly integrate
it in libvirt's configure.ac / Makefile.am files.

With these 2 patches all executables gain -fPIE and
-z relro -z now.

Using the checksec.sh script from

  http://www.trapkit.de/tools/checksec.html

We can see the difference, before:

$ ~/checksec.sh --file /usr/sbin/libvirtd
'RELRO           STACK CANARY      NX            PIE             RPATH      RUNPATH      FILE
Partial RELRO   Canary found      NX enabled    No PIE          No RPATH   No RUNPATH   /usr/sbin/libvirtd

After

$ ~/checksec.sh --file /usr/sbin/libvirtd
'RELRO           STACK CANARY      NX            PIE             RPATH      RUNPATH      FILE
Full RELRO      Canary found      NX enabled    PIE enabled     No RPATH   No RUNPATH   /usr/sbin/libvirtd
