--personality-type <type>
... execute <program> in the given execution domain
--personality-flags <flags>+
... set special flags for the given execution domain
--silent
... be silent
--silentexist
... be silent when context exists already; usefully for '--create' only
--syncsock <file-name>
... before executing the program, send a message
to the socket and wait until it closes. <file-name> must be a SOCK_STREAM unix socket
--syncmsg <message>
... use <message> as synchronization message; by
default, 'ok' will be used
--vlogin
