This is not the prototype of sys_execve(). It looks like this :

asmlinkage int sys_execve(struct pt_regs regs)

this syscall is a little more tricky to track than the others, because the
pt_regs is not a pointer here. That means you can't just stick in a call
inbetween like with most syscalls.

Instead you should just copy the code from sys_execve() and call do_execve
directly from the module (it is exported, so you can).

but - you will need to do this for all architectures as they differ

and are you really sure you need to do this ?
