# This should be easy to do, but does not solve the any
# problems. Might as well stay with the current 4K buffer.
# We might also try removing the need for huge proc files.
#
# Are there any other potentially huge (>1MB) /proc/net
# files?

Maybe not >1mb, but I can think of something greater than 4K: the
contents of ~linux/.config.

I have always thought that having contents of .config in a /proc entry
would be great for new kernel configuration (at least to compile
something identical to what you are currently running). Or at least to
set defaults.
