I'm not sure that linkvalidator needs any of those. exec() is used for 
ImageMagick/GraphicsMagick at least.

Many other providers allow those functions without any problems. Do 
yourself a favour and switch to a hosting provider that allows the 
necessary functions.
If it's for a development site or a not very large website you can have 
a vps for around EUR 10 / month with Dutch providers. With those servers 
you have to do the maintenance yourself, but that is not hard and at 
least you have all the freedom in the world to allow functions.
There are also plenty of TYPO3 hosting providers in Europe who provide 
pre-installed TYPO3 systems and take care of upgrades for you.
