    It is actually not that bad, you can simply wrap it, like Pedro did in

    Seems nobody uses the system call...

    Ok, so proc_dointvec_jiffies is broken by design and the proposal above
    is wrong.

    Fortunately most net variables don't need a transformation/state setup,
    so only proc_dointvec_jiffies and rtcache_flush needs fixing I think, or
    did I miss something?
