C implementation is not purpose by itself. What do you really want?

 * You was already provided with a simple way to make scripts work
   with kernel != "linux".

 * Issue with sysctl forwarding was fixed with several lines of shell

 * You claim that there is more shell code, that uses $0. Maybe. File
   bug reports. I believe fixes would be several lines too.

Can you please again explain, why do you want us to create and maintain
one more implementation of argv0(1)?
