SubjectRe: [uml-devel] [PATCH 04/10] uml: make execvp safe for our usage

This is horriby ugly. Can we instead do something different like
check out the paths of helpers at early boot, before the kernel is
running, save them, and simply execve them later?

At that point, something like running "which foo" would be fine by me.
