Any forward progress on the recent amd64 regression?

The breakage I reported in [1] is still present in -current sources more than a day later. Details of the breakage can be seen at [2] ... From the TNF test bed at [3] it appears that the problem also exists on i386 platform.

Is anyone working on the problem?

I think the issue had been narrowed down by Andreas to the following commit:

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   rmind
Date:           Mon Apr 30 21:19:58 UTC 2012

Modified Files:
        src/sys/compat/netbsd32: netbsd32_execve.c
        src/sys/kern: kern_exec.c
        src/sys/sys: exec.h spawn.h

Log Message:
- Remove copy-pasting in error paths, use execve_free_{vmspace,data}().
- Move some code (both in the init and exit paths) out of the locks.
- Slightly simplify do_posix_spawn() callers.
- Add few asserts and comments.
