I have no idea where the cm14.1 libraries are. Does anybody know where
the matching source code for setexeccon() would be?

For me - obviously not on cm14.1 - all "setexeccon()" does is

   n = openat(AT_FDCWD, "/proc/thread-self/attr/exec", O_RDWR|O_CLOEXEC)
   write(n, string, len)

and if that fails, it would seem to indicate that proc_mem_open()
failed. Which would be mm_access() failing. But I don't see how that
can be the case, because mm_access() explicitly allows "mm ==
current->mm" (which the above clearly should be).

youling, can you double-check with the current -git tree? But as far
as I can tell, my minimal patch is exactly the same as Kees' patch
(just smaller and simpler).

Kees, do you see anything?
