You forgot to cc the mailing list. Adding it.

This is a way to solve it, I would still recommend you fix it at the source
(proper cross build).

We found the consumerd in /lib/lttng/libexec/lttng-consumerd. Good.

We now try to execl the following:

/lib/lttng/libexec/lttng-consumerd -k --consumerd-cmd-sock <a_path> --consumerd-error-sock <b_path> --group root

And execl returns "Permission Denied".

Clearly, /lib/lttng/libexec/lttng-consumerd have some permissions problem.

"Permission denied" is linked to EACCES on my system.
  17:#define    EACCES          13     /* Permission denied */

"man execve" list all the reasons why execl might return EACCES per "man execl":

  EACCES Search permission is denied on a component of the path prefix of filename or the name of a script interpreter.  (See also path_resolution(7).)
  EACCES The file or a script interpreter is not a regular file.
  EACCES Execute permission is denied for the file or a script or ELF interpreter.
  EACCES The filesystem is mounted noexec.

One of them probably fit your current scenario.

Let us know how it goes.
