kinfo_proc * 2
can someone point me to an archive or discussion that would explain
why we have two kernel proc structures?
i'm digging through the kernel code and can't really see how / why
they are used except for sysctl references? i'm assuming that basically
anything that checks process information (i.e. top/fstat/vmstat) will
use them (i'll check there next) but wouldn't it be easier just to
have a single structure for all the information?
i understand that altering the size of the kernel structures is
awkward for compatibility but wouldn't these have been unified between
releases when these sorts of incompatibilities are acceptable?
