Subject[patch 33/58] compat_do_execve should unshare_files
2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Hugh Dickins <hugh@veritas.com>

commit 53e9309e01277ec99c38e84e0ca16921287cf470 upstream.

2.6.26's commit fd8328be874f4190a811c58cd4778ec2c74d2c05
"sanitize handling of shared descriptor tables in failing execve()"
moved the unshare_files() from flush_old_exec() and several binfmts
to the head of do_execve(); but forgot to make the same change to
compat_do_execve(), leaving a CLONE_FILES files_struct shared across
exec from a 32-bit process on a 64-bit kernel.

It's arguable whether the files_struct really ought to be unshared
across exec; but 2.6.1 made that so to stop the loading binary's fd
leaking into other threads, and a 32-bit process on a 64-bit kernel
ought to behave in the same way as 32 on 32 and 64 on 64.
