Oh well, I just did /proc/<pid>/stack by making it just print 0 unconditionally rather than the hex number. Looking around, not even proc-ps actually uses that file, and it's conditional on PROC_STACKTRACE anyway. And can't recall ever having seen a report of something breaking due to CONFIG_STACKTRACE not being enabled, so I suspect nothing really uses /proc/<pid>/stack at all. But rather than removing it, making it report 0 seemed the smaller change. I'd be inclined to do the same for /proc/*/net/* too, but I would actually expect that there are tools that cross-reference the sockets by socket address (ie "fuser" and similar tools). So I'd like to have that hashing for that. Although maybe I'm wrong, and they simply use the socket number, and the socket address could just be scrubbed entirely. Linus
