SubjectRe: read_proc issue
That's a good solution in the general case but doesn't work for
some of the proc entries that already exist. cpuinfo, for example.
There seem to be a number of niche /proc methods already. A cache-on-open
method would be very useful for files like cpuinfo and a number of other
files for PPC.

It sure would make accessing /proc files less whacky for user-code.

} Another approach is to do the calculation open and remember it in per
} fd private data. You can recover that and free it on release. It could
} even be a buffer holding the actual "content"
