Subject#ifdef CONFIG_KCORE - make /proc/kcore optional

Hi

Is it possible to add a new ifdef which disables /proc/kcore ?

or even better: Only activate it when compiled with -g

Motivation:
* It is useless without -g
- http://groups.yahoo.com/group/libgtop-devel-list/message/165
* Only kernel hackers uses it
- "...well, do you, punk?"
* It is a painfull/useless thing for newbies
- tar cf foo.tar /
* It generates silly questions and answers
- http://ftp.cobaltnet.com/lists/cobalt-users/msg02754.html


best regards
Hans Schou
