>From reading the code I see that linux_binprm::p started being an offset
in the commit b6a2fea39318 ("mm: variable length argument support")
which is v2.6.22-3328-gb6a2fea39318 and filling in the AT_EXECFN
aux entry was added in the commit
 5edc2a5123a7 ("binfmt_elf_fdpic: wire up AT_EXECFD, AT_EXECFN, AT_SECURE")
which is v2.6.27-4641-g5edc2a5123a7. I don't see any translation
of the linux_binprm::exec at that time so to me it looks like it's always
been broken.
