Subject: [PATCH] ELF: don't copy ELF header around
Date: Sun, 8 Dec 2019 20:12:42 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20191208171242.GA19716@avx2> (raw)

ELF header is read into bprm->buf[] by generic execve code.

Save a memcpy and allocate just one header for the interpreter instead
of two headers (64 bytes instead of 128 on 64-bit).
