If you don't enable the preserve-arg[0] flag, old and new QEMU will work.

If you enable the flag, only new QEMU with -0/QEMU_ARGV0 will work.

The best solution would be to force preserve-arg[0] with open-binary
flag and rely on AT_FDEXEC to detect the binfmt-misc environment, but
this breaks compatibility with existing environment and old QEMU.

Regarding the "binfmt-misc stuff is whole-system" problem, I've proposed
months ago a kernel based solution [1] to have a configuration per
namespace (chroot), but no one seems really interested (I think
maintainer is afraid by potential security issues).
