Thanks to Aleksey and you for fixing the procfs leak.
I wonder whether pmap's code is the right place to check for
"information" access control. It's difficult to modify except by
patching the source, does not protect from abusing/finding exploits to
circumvent the check (any executable that has kmem sgid rights is a
target), and there are other potential tools usable out there (lsof(1),
Isn't it something that rather fits the kauth(9) ACLs?
