Add in_execve flag into task_struct.
Kentaro Takeda [Thu, 5 Feb 2009 08:18:11 +0000 (17:18 +0900)]
This patch allows LSM modules to determine whether current process is in an
execve operation or not so that they can behave differently while an execve
operation is in progress.

This patch is needed by TOMOYO. Please see another patch titled "LSM adapter
functions." for backgrounds.
