currently, with these two libkvm functions:
kvm_open(const char *execfile, const char *corefile, char *swapfile,
int flags, const char *errstr);
kvm_openfiles(const char *execfile, const char *corefile, char *swapfile,
int flags, char *errbuf);
if a null pointer is passed for execfile, the man page states that:
If this argument is NULL, the currently running system is
assumed, which is indicated by _PATH_UNIX in <paths.h>.
would anyone find it particularly egregious if this was modified
slightly so that a null pointer caused it to default to
machdep.booted_kernel, and then to fall back to _PATH_UNIX if the
former was not found?
