You mean check FMODE_EXEC instead of current->in_execve ?

Subject: [PATCH v2] fs: Allow opening only regular files during execve().

syzbot is hitting lockdep warning [1] due to trying to open a fifo during
an execve() operation. But we don't need to open non regular files during
an execve() operation, for all files which we will need are the executable
file itself and the interpreter programs like /bin/sh and ld-linux.so.2 .

Since the manpage for execve(2) says that execve() returns EACCES when
the file or a script interpreter is not a regular file, and the manpage
for uselib(2) says that uselib() can return EACCES, and we use FMODE_EXEC
when opening for execve()/uselib(), let's bail out if a non regular file
is requested with FMODE_EXEC set.
