Subject[PATCH 1/7] introduce kernel_execve
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.
