Just to show the problem:

$ cat test.batch
netns add netns1
netns exec netns1 ip l
netns
$ ip -b test.batch
1: lo: <LOOPBACK> mtu 65536 qdisc noop state DOWN mode DEFAULT
     link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
2: sit0: <NOARP> mtu 1480 qdisc noop state DOWN mode DEFAULT
     link/sit 0.0.0.0 brd 0.0.0.0

All command after 'netns exec' are never executed.

With the patch:
$ ip -b test.batch
1: lo: <LOOPBACK> mtu 65536 qdisc noop state DOWN mode DEFAULT
     link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
2: sit0: <NOARP> mtu 1480 qdisc noop state DOWN mode DEFAULT
     link/sit 0.0.0.0 brd 0.0.0.0
netns1

Now, existing netns are displayed.

Right, should use WEXITSTATUS(). I will send a v2.

Maybe I miss something, but man execvp says:
"The exec() functions only return if an error has have occurred."
