Subject: [PATCH] fs: Preventing READ_IMPLIES_EXEC Propagation

From: Dong Bo <dongbo4@...wei.com>

In load_elf_binary(), once the READ_IMPLIES_EXEC flag is set,
the flag is propagated to its child processes, even the elf
files are marked as not requiring executable stack. It may
cause superfluous operations on some arch, e.g.
__sync_icache_dcache on aarch64 due to a PROT_READ mmap is
also marked as PROT_EXEC.
