setarch  -  change reported architecture in new program environment and
   set personality flags


   setarch arch [options] [program [argument...]]

   arch [options] [program [argument...]]

   setarch --list|-h|-V


   setarch currently only affects the output of uname -m.  For example, on
   an AMD64 system, running setarch i386 program will cause program to see
   i686 instead of x86_64 as the machine type.   It  also  allows  to  set
   various personality options.  The default program is /bin/sh.


   --list List  the  architectures  that  setarch  knows  about.   Whether
          setarch can actually set each of these architectures depends  on
          the running kernel.

          Causes the program to see a kernel version number beginning with

   -v, --verbose
          Be verbose.

   -3, --3gb
          Specifies that processes should use a maximum of 3GB of  address
          space on systems where it is supported (ADDR_LIMIT_3GB).

   --4gb  Ignored (for backward compatibility only).

   -B, --32bit
          Turns on ADDR_LIMIT_32BIT.

   -F, --fdpic-funcptrs

   -I, --short-inode
          Turns on SHORT_INODE.

   -L, --addr-compat-layout
          Changes the way  virtual  memory  is  allocated  (turns  on  the

   -R, --addr-no-randomize
          Disables  randomization  of  the virtual address space (turns on

   -S, --whole-seconds
          Turns on WHOLE_SECONDS.

   -T, --sticky-timeouts
          Turns on STICKY_TIMEOUTS.

   -X, --read-implies-exec
          Turns on READ_IMPLIES_EXEC.

   -Z, --mmap-page-zero
          Turns on MMAP_PAGE_ZERO.

   -V, --version
          Display version information and exit.

   -h, --help
          Display help text and exit.
