    mm_struct is the central object for a heavyweight process. All threads
    within that process share the same executable path (don't they?) so
    attaching the executable path to the mm seems OK to me.

    What I always find a bit weird is that an MM container is used as the
    central point for a number of sched obects. But it's logical, given
    that the never-before-stated definition of a heavyweight process is
    "thing which share a VM".
