I'd make the "fd" parameter of this function an "unsigned int", given
that that's also the argument type of fcheck_files().

You're hardcoding the flags for the fd as 0, which means that there is
no way for the caller to enable O_CLOEXEC on the fd in a way that is
race-free against a concurrent execve(). If you can't easily plumb
through an O_CLOEXEC flag from userspace to here, you should probably
hardcode O_CLOEXEC here.

Annoyingly, this isn't how fd_install() works. fd_install() has
slightly weird semantics and consumes the reference passed to it, so
this should be:

if (ret >= 0)
fd_install(ret, file);
else
fput(file);
