In fact there's the SYSCTL_KERN/KERN_PROC hierarchy, but it's meant
for something different (getting eproc structs). however, it, or the
choices it provides, could probably be used as a model for something
like what's desired here...
Maybe something like:
Or i could see flipping it around:
so you could easily show multiple procs' complete sets of values at
once in a clean way. I dunno, this may or may not be a good idea. 8-)
IIRC, at least one system (Compaq Tru64 UNIX (formerly Digital UNIX
(formerly DEC OSF/1))) provides a syscall to do the alignment
attribute setting, but i forget what it is. I'd guess solaris might
do something similar for sparc.
