ktrace-lwp branch changed uio_procp to uio_lwp.
IMO, it was a mistake because what uio needs to describe is
an address space, not a thread.

rather than just reverting the change, i'd like to go further
as a one step.  a vmspace (or a vm_map) is more appropriate than a process.

i guess that the change makes implementations of aio-like things
more straightforward.
