    More precisely:
    - The last working commit is b6dff3ec... "CRED: Separate task
    security context from task_struct".
    - The first commit exhibiting the permissions problem is
    a6f76f2... "CRED: Make execve() take advantage of
    copy-on-write credentials".
    - The 9 commits in between (from f1752eec to d84f4f9) result in
    a soft lookup on boot.
