By using execveat we no longer depend on /proc.  The execveat syscall was
introduced in 3.19, except for a few late comers.

	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/fexecve.c (fexecve) [__NR_execveat]: Try
	execveat first.
	[!__ASSUME_EXECVEAT]: Fall back to /proc if execveat is
	unimplemented.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/kernel-features.h (__ASSUME_EXECVEAT)
	[__LINUX_KERNEL_VERSION >= 0x031300]: Define.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/alpha/kernel-features.h
	(__ASSUME_EXECVEAT) [__LINUX_KERNEL_VERSION < 0x040200]: Undef.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/hppa/kernel-features.h
	(__ASSUME_EXECVEAT) [__LINUX_KERNEL_VERSION < 0x040000]: Undef.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/microblaze/kernel-features.h
	(__ASSUME_EXECVEAT) [__LINUX_KERNEL_VERSION < 0x040000]: Undef.

Ideally, this should have a test that executing “/bin/sh -c true”
works, both with an O_PATH descriptor and a regular descriptor.

The implementation itself (including the AT_EMPTY_PATH flag) and the
__ASSUME_EXECVEAT conditions look good to me.
