    [PATCH] introduce kernel_execve · 67608567
    Arnd Bergmann authored
    
    
    The use of execve() in the kernel is dubious, since it relies on the
    __KERNEL_SYSCALLS__ mechanism that stores the result in a global errno
    variable.  As a first step of getting rid of this, change all users to a
    global kernel_execve function that returns a proper error code.
    
    This function is a terrible hack, and a later patch removes it again after the
    kernel syscalls are gone.
