Yes, you are right. I will focus on the getting the first series right
first, before considering that.

In fact, I have a slight change of mind on how to do it. Instead of
adding a new _range parameter to show just the range of a particular
sysctl parameter, I am thinking of a generic sysctl_ranges parameter
that iterates all the ctl_table entries and list out the ranges of all
the parameters that are flagged to have a min/max range. That will
eliminate the interface clutter due to a bunch of new *_range /proc/sys
