I do think that what Jung-uk did is the right approach, and your suggestion
is wrong. The way it is done in r234352 serves the purpose of pipe2(2),
namely, the atomicity of setting O_CLOEXEC and O_NONBLOCK with respect
You may argue that kern_execve() applies single-threading around the syscall
implementation, so our thread cannot be inside the kern_pipe() while other
thread performs execve(2). But unfortunately, this is only true for FreeBSD
ABI, while linuxolator has very flawed execve() (and fork()) implementation.
In particular, other threads are running while some thread performs fork
So I think that the do_pipe() should be kept as is.
