    SubjectRe: [RFC] ps command race fix
    Another possibility (perhaps a really stupid idea ;) would be to
    snapshot the list of pids on the open, and let the readdir() just
    access that fixed array.

    The kernel/cpuset.c cpuset_tasks_open() routine that displays the
    pids of tasks in a cpuset (the per-cpuset 'tasks' file) does this.

    Then the seek and read and such semantics are nice and stable and

    Throw out the snapshot on the last close.

    I won't rest till it's the best ...
