linux: Add execveat system call wrapper

System Internals / glibc - Alexandra Hájková [gmail.com] - 3 May 2021 19:46 UTC

It operates similar to execve and it is is already used to implement fexecve without requiring /proc to be mounted. However, different than fexecve, if the syscall is not supported by the kernel an error is returned instead of trying a fallback.

Checked on x86_64-linux-gnu and powerpc64le-linux-gnu.
