 The following change fix the crash:
 -cvs rdiff -u -r1.442.4.3 -r1.450 src/sys/kern/kern_exec.c
 +cvs rdiff -u -r1.442.4.3 -r1.454 src/sys/kern/kern_exec.c
 Before the christos modifications, lang/rust building failed on NetBSD 
 8.0 when done in a chroot environment:
 --- stderr
 thread 'main' panicked at 'failed to get current_exe: /proc/curproc/exe 
 doesn't point to regular file.', 
 Now, it builds successfully:
 $ ls -1 /mnt/ccd0/sandbox/nbsd8-hydralisk/pkg/All | grep rust
 The current status of this PR is 'needs-pullups'. What could we do to 
 close it?
 My personal need is to have a 8.0 able to build bulk sets of packages 
 for several 8.0 domU. If theses changes can only be integrated in 8.2, I 
 finally should upgrade all my 8.0 to 8.2. I would to avoid upgrading but 
 if I have to do, I might as well do it to 9.0. So I can continue while 
 waiting with my custom 8.0. Is there a need to add this fix in a future 
 8.X release? In this case, what should I provide to contribute?
