Subjectproc_register_dynamic() problem & questions

I'm trying to use "proc_register_dynamic()"+"get_info()" for displaying
some kernel data structures. Can i somehow output more than 4K of data?

The current implementation {the VFS calls array_read(), array_read()
allocates one page and calls get_info()} seems to be limited to 4K.
Putting yet another enum into "root_directory_inos" seems to be a hack and
isnt the best thing for modules (and i have to maintain patches for
fs/proc then -> this isnt fun IMHO).

If this all is correct then i'd like to know if someone intends to fix
this behaviour, if yes then i can test it out; if not then i can try to
hack up something for 2.1.

any comments greatly appreciated, Ingo

ps. [i see no explicit maintainer for /proc issues (is it you Linus?)]
