Can you change this to take an actual address and get the exe_file
from an mmapped area and make certain that the mmaped_area is already
mapped MAP_EXEC.

That will prevent out-right lies.

At least then we will know that exe_file will at least be a file that is
mapped executable in the process's address space. It's not a lot better
but it makes /proc/<pid>/exe at almost as trustable as it is now.
