SubjectRe: access to proc filesystem from chrooted process
Hi Peri.

Unless I'm misunderstanding this, it appears to be pointless since
only processes chroot'd to / or /proc could see the entries in the
proc file system anyway, as if they're chroot'd anywhere else, they
can't even access /proc ???

Best wishes from Riley.
