Subject[RFC] Imminent death of /proc/locks predicted; film at 11

Does anyone actually want /proc/locks to stay? The data structure
which allows it to be generated is now only used by the code to print
out /proc/locks. If it could be deleted, a lot of code and data pointers
could go away. I don't think any program depends on its existance and
it's a pretty ugly file anyway (exposing kernel pointers to userspace?
looks like pure debug code).

Speak now, or it shall be gone.
