a libc implementation of posix_spawn can even bypass plt if it wants,
can't it?

having said that, if rump or whatever want to alter the behaviour of
other libraries by overwriting low-level symbols, it's their responsibility
to do it in a safe way, IMO.

anyway, i don't think an in-kernel implementation is better in this regard.
ie. rump needs to override posix_spawn as a whole.
