Sure, that can't be bad. I didn't really do anything so far that warrants being called testing (compiles, runs, doesn't crash on boot -- send patch! ;). But I also didn't invent this feature: it has been in OpenWall and grsecurity for a long time now, so a form of restricted /proc has received at least *some* testing.
