    Several have been suggested, but Linus hasn't liked any of them.

    Personally, I'd like to see all of the sysconf() information vectored
    directly from the kernel. Make sysconf() a system call (if it isn't
    already) and then make every one of the POSIX/UNIX98 standard variables
    available from the kernel -- most of it should already be in the kernel

    (_SC_NPROCESSORS_* (without parsing cpuinfo) would certainly shut me up :-))


    PS: I guess I'm volunteering myself, aren't I?
