and how about p_reflock?

it would deadlock if in the mean time another thread does rw_enter(WRITER)
on the lock.

isn't the proc_is_new check necessary for error paths that releases p_reflock?

who frees fae_path if execve_loadvm failed?

an error seems ignored when fae_path copyinstr failed.

double-free of fae_path if execve_runproc failed?
