I will.

With a little care we can replace setting BINPRM_FLAGS_ENFORCE_NONDUMP
and clearing bprm->mm->dumpable.

Which is the direction I have been looking.

Now that I think about it I believe that the loop in exec_binprm should
be clearing BINPRM_FLAGS_PATH_INACCESSIBLE as it is only relevant to
fexec/execveat with a close on exec file descriptor.
