Thank you!

I applied that patch on top of the OpenWRT patched gcc-linaro-4.8-2014.04 and 
now everything has NOEXECSTACK out of the box! And I this works without having 
to add the gentoo hardening patch individually to the MIPS assembler files of 
uClibc. Which simplifies things greatly.

Thank you very much for your help and patience.

I will be submitting this patch to OpenWRT.
