[PATCH] uml: workaround GDB problems on debugging



Apparently, GDB gets confused when we do an execvp() on ourselves.

Since it's simply done to allocate further space for command line arguments
(which we'll use to allow gathering the startup command line for guest
processes through the host), allow the user to disable that to get a
debuggable UML binary.

This controls whether arguments in guest processes should be shown on
the host's ps output.
Enabling this option hinders debugging on some recent GDB versions
(because GDB gets "confused" when we do an execvp()). So probably you
should disable it.
