Re: kern/51700 (exect(NULL,NULL,NULL) generates 15859 times SIGTRAP on amd64)

Synopsis: exect(NULL,NULL,NULL) generates 15859 times SIGTRAP on amd64

State-Changed-From-To: open->closed
State-Changed-When: Mon, 04 Jun 2018 11:46:04 +0200
exect(3) has been marked obsolete
its functionality has been moved long time ago into the kernel that now fires SIGTRAP for the exec(3) event

FreeBSD decided recently to reimplement their exect(3) with PT_TRACE_ME + execve(2), but it has no purpose.
OpenBSD has removed exect(3) long time ago.
