We don't know what this is used for.

We know it does not work on FreeBSD, but this does not seem to be a problem.
Introducing something more on FreeBSD is a risk with no actual benefit
at first sight.

Either we take only the first patch under a #ifdef EXEC_ENV_LINUX or
we leave this as is.

Krzystof, is this a problem for you if we postpone and investigate
further for 20.02?
