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")
