Subject: [PATCH 06/12] procfs: make /proc/*/stack 0400

The /proc/*/stack contains sensitive information and currently its mode
is 0444. Change this to 0400 so the VFS will be able to block
unprivileged processes to get file descriptors on arbitrary privileged
/proc/*/stack files.

The /proc/*/stack is a /procfs ONE file that shares the same ->open()
file operation with other ONE files. Doing a ptrace_may_access() check
during open() might break userspace from accessing other ONE files
like /proc/*/stat and /proc/*/statm.

Therfore make it 0400 for now, and improve its check during ->read()
in the next following patch.
