Seems someone beat me to it... except: it doesn't work when
binfmt_java is a loadable module. Also, /bin/bash is still
hard-coded, which is unacceptable. If these things have to be
scripts, it should be handled through the standard #! mechanism.
Furthermore, it still seems to me there is something wrong with the
code when executing a binary in a different directory.
