Looks good to me.

> As there have been significant changes (refactoring) to the build files between JDK 8 and JDK 10, I had to modify the change slightly. For each of the two source trees modified, hotspot and root, I tried to follow the preexisting style as much as possible. So for hotspot (really just libjsig.so and the SA agent), I introduced a new variable, LDFLAGS_NO_EXEC_STACK to the make files. (Note that libjvm.so was already built with noexecstack before this fix). However, for the forest root changes, I directly added the needed option to LDFLAGS_JDK. Ultimately these are merely syntax differences, the actual change in resulting builds is exactly the same as in JDK 10.
