Heh, the very first line:
fs/exec.c(1465): remark #593: variable "flag" was set but never used

fs/exec.c:
1477 /*
1478 * We cannot trust fsuid as being the "true" uid of the
1479 * process nor do we know its entire history. We only know it
1480 * was tainted so we dump it as root in mode 2.
1481 */
1482 if (mm->dumpable == 2) { /* Setuid core dump mode */
1483 flag = O_EXCL; /* Stop rewrite attacks */
1484 current->fsuid = 0; /* Dump root private */
1485 }

And then filp_open follows with "flag" totally ignored.
