    SubjectRe: Choice of "XT PIC" in /proc/interrupts

    Yes.

    The "file" is not very parsable with the space in some entries.

    Proposal:

    XT-PIC (note the '-' character)
    AT-PIC
    APIC

    In general:

    1. avoid headers
    2. add lines to the end
    3. add columns to the right -- but only if you must
    4. avoid whitespace inside entries
    5. escape anything from users
    6. avoid dumb changes, like "SigCgt" to "SigCat" in /proc/$$/status
    7. [anyone else have suggestions?]
