Doesn't it really 'just' require the kernel to keep a reference to
the directory vnode the program was loaded from, and to give
userspace some method of opening files relative to that directory?
Could be as simple as using a flag bit to open, or maybe
pathnames that start "//$ORIGIN/", or even both.
