So the security mess digs a hole too deep for itself, and wants to make worse for everyone else by adding that awfull systemcall? No thanks.

Just add a prctr() that makes execve() behave like this new execve_nosecurity(), that should do it. Or better, fix up the whole mess so that this whole issue isn't here at all.

If you want to make things more secure, simplify, don't add extra complexion like this.
