Yes, this is so much nicer. :) My head did spin a little between changing
the management of bprm->executable between this patch and the next,
but I'm okay now. ;)

nit: can we fix the "* " stuff here? This should be *file and *executable.

nit: may as well renumber BINPRM_FLAGS_PATH_INACCESSIBLE_BIT to 1,
they're not UAPI. And, actually, nothing uses the *_BIT defines, so
probably the entire chunk of code could just be reduced to:

/* either interpreter or executable was unreadable */
#define BINPRM_FLAGS_ENFORCE_NONDUMP BIT(0)
/* filename of the binary will be inaccessible after exec */
#define BINPRM_FLAGS_PATH_INACCESSIBLE BIT(1)

Though frankly, I wonder if interp_flags could just be removed in favor
of two new bit members, especially since interp_data is gone:

+ /* Either interpreter or executable was unreadable. */
+ nondumpable:1;
+ /* Filename of the binary will be inaccessible after exec. */
+ path_inaccessible:1;
...
- unsigned interp_flags;
...etc
