Doesn't compile for s390. Patch attached, issues fixed:
1) Include unistd.h for __NR_execve
2) The compiler warns about __arg2 and __arg3 assignments (watch out for
the *const* - isn't C a lovely language ;-)
3) The inline assembly does not clobber register "1", nor the condition
code. The call to kernel_execve does clobber both so it is not really a
problem, but nit-picking is fun >:-)
