    Ok, I doubt anybody cares. I think that thing is entirely historical,
    and we probably should never have done it in the first place. I wonder
    if we should just replace that field with a zero.

    We've moved flag bits around in task->flags (and moved them to
    thread->flags) before, so that /proc/<pid>/stat field has not been
    stable historically either. I can't imagine what could break - it
    would have broken many times before too.
