Do you mind sharing the patch? It doesn't have to be perfect. I'm
just curious how it looks. IMHO the suggested pid array passing is
good enough and not too intrusive but, if there's something simpler
from kernel side, given that this is a very specialized interface, I
think we definitely need to consider that.

Thank you.
