(I should've warned that I just proposed this as a completely untested
brainstorm.)

Yes, that is the common case.

Thanks Rasmus, I was unaware we had that function.

In that case I think we'd actually need sm like:
spin_lock(&cur_fds->file_lock);
fdt = files_fdtable(cur_fds);
cur_max = files_fdtable(cur_fds)->max_fds - 1;
max_fd = min(max_fd, cur_max);
bitmap_set(fdt->close_on_exec, fd, max_fd - fd + 1)

so we retrieve max_fd with the spinlock held, I think.

Christian
