SubjectRe: [PATCH] Fix mmap_kmem (was: [question] What's the difference between /dev/kmem and /dev/mem)

ps doesn't use kmem, and besides, in 2.6 we export that directly in
proc. poking in /dev/mem or /dev/kmem is NOT something you "just do".
THere are lots of pitfalls, things like PCI space, memory sizes/holes,
cachability aliases etc etc that can ruin your breakfast if you
use /dev/[k]mem...
