The biggest problem is that it re-opens a security hole that was explicitly
patched in procfs.

Also, the way I see it, the linux procfs should probably only be visible to
linux sysvec processes...  It would be a damn shame to let
/compat/linux/procfs "sneak in" to the expected system requirements for bsd
programs so that developers can use the easy way out rather than doing
something properly.
