exec doesn't respect all_sects_writable

I wanted to run a current L4Linux using the CVS version of DROPS and got 
a page fault when the Linux code is self-modified. I was told to use the 
option all_sects_writable for the loader, but this apparently does not 
work when not using ldso.

Exec seems to ignore this option and maps in the L4Linux space read 
only. This looks like a bug to me.
