Linux task-controller determines its own path insecurely

      Description

      The task-controller uses argv[0] to determine its own path, and then calls stat() on that. Instead it should stat("/proc/self/exe") directly. This is important since argv[0] can be spoofed to point to another program and thus either fool the autodetection of HADOOP_HOME or evade various permissions checks.
