Subject[RFC][PATCH 3/3] [RFC][PATCH] Make /proc/pid/exe symlink changeable
This patch makes the /proc/<pid>|self/exe symlink writeable. This
functionality could be useful to potential checkpoint/restart implementations
restarting Java VMs, for example. Java uses this symlink to locate
JAVAHOME so any restarted Java program requires that /proc/self/exe points to
the jvm and not the restart exectuable.
