I wrote PR 11452 which is based on PR 11242 but adds support for 'env' and 'restore_signals' parameters and checks the operating system and libc version to decide if posix_spawn() can be used by subprocess.

In my implementation, posix_spawn() is only used on macOS and glibc 2.26 or newer (and glibc 2.24 and newer on Linux).

According to Alexey Izbyshev, musl should be safe as well, but I don't know how to test musl on my Fedora, nor how to check if Python is linked to musl, nor what is the minimum musl version which is safe.
