Log Message:
execve_runproc: Correct thinko in Rev. 1.386; the new SP always points to
after (higher adderss) argc/argv/env/aux/strings regardless of stack growing
direction .

Doesn't this mean that argc, etc will get overwritten on _rtld_start call for stack grows down machines?

SP needs to point to the first available stack address. On stack grows down machines this is a lower value than argc, etc. On stack grows up machines this is a higher value.

btw, why do you keep adding 4 space idented { } ?
