I think there is a memory leak. It needs a "putname()" call
somewhere to match the

If we are going this route, the discussion needs to happen on
LKML as this is not an ia64 only kind of patch.  But I'm still
not sure that I understand what's wrong with the existing
method of calling sys_personality() that we've been using for
the past few years.  Christoph ... can you expand a little on
