    I'm using this system call in an application and noticed that's marked
    as deprecated now.
    My application collects all kind of information from crashing programs.
    It's installed in /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern.

    If program X is crashing it executes get_robust_list(X) to get the
    address of the robust list
    and reads the list from /proc/X/mem.

    Is there another way to get the robust list from another program (by it's pid)?
