    As anyone can see in the source file drivers/target/target_core_mib.c
    this patch adds a significant number of new files to procfs. I thought
    that this was considered unacceptable since a long time ? Has anything
    changed ?

    See also http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=blob;f=drivers/target/target_core_mib.c.
