Does this do:
fork(); setgid(); setuid();
Or does it do:
fork(); setgid(); setuid(); execve("/usr/sbin/apache-mpm", ...);
It would be much more conveniant for me if it does the latter, then I could
easily patch the code to do secure_execve() to run the vhost in a different
SE Linux security context.
