whilst renaming it 'kinfo_proc_compat31' (or something) and subsequently
renaming 'kinfo_proc2' to 'kinfo_proc'.  i'm prepared to do it and
follow it through if someone with knowledge/authority can help by
supplying agreed struct names, conversion routines and compat definitions
that should be expected (e.g. 'kinfo_proc_compat31_to_native' or
'_COMPAT_KINFO_PROC_31' or whatever).
