Ah, I didn't mean NOMMU. I meant compat_execve()->compat_copy_strings().
If a 32bit process execs we seem to miss the RLIMIT_STACK check, no?

Yes, yes, sure.

OK.

Well it does, to revert the MM_ANONPAGES counter. I'll add the empty
function for NOMMU.

OK.

Yes, we already killed all sub-threads. But this doesn't mean nobody
else can use current->mm, think about CLONE_VM. The simplest example
is vfork().

Yes.

Thanks Kosaki!

I'll resend v2 today. I am still not sure about compat_copy_strings()...

Oleg.
