SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/9] proc: protect /proc/<pid>/* files across execve

So I am dense. /proc/<pid>/mem was special in that it uses a different
set of checks than other files, and to do those access checks
/proc/<pid>/mem needed to look at exec_id.

For all of the access checks that are not written in that silly way.
What is wrong with ptrace_may_access run at every read/write of a file?

We redo all of the permission checks every time so that should avoid
races.

I really think you are trying to solve something that is not broken.
Certainly I could not see your argument for why anything but
/proc/<pid>/mem needs attention.
