Subject[PATCH 1/9] exec: add a global execve counter
Date
Procfs files and other important objects may contain sensitive information
which must not be seen, inherited or processed across execve.
The commit e268337dfe26dfc7efd422a804dbb27977a3cccc tries to fix the same
problem.
Given that consideration this patch introduces two counters:
A global atomic execve counter that will be incremented on every
do_execve_common() call, and an atomic exec_id member for the task_struct.

The task's exec_id can be used as a security check to see and to test if
some special objects belong to the appropriate process image since it will
be a uniq id on each execve operation.

There is also new helper functions:
get_task_exec_id() to get the task's exec_id and task_exec_id_ok() to
check if the provided exec_id equals the task's exec_id.

The exec_id idea is taken from the recent grsecurity patches.
