Summary0002377: execstack -s and execstack -c break sym-links
DescriptionIf you have libfoo.0.1.2 and a sym-link libfoo.0 pointing to it then the
command "execstack -c libfoo.0" will delete the sym-link and replace it with
a copy of libfoo.0.1.2 (with the removal of the exec-stack requirement).

It does the same thing with the "-s" option.

If the -s or -c parameter points to a sym-link then it should call readlink(2)
to get the real name and then operate on the real file. Doing otherwise
doesn't work well with ldconfig etc.
