Subject[PATCH] proc: add "personality" to process status file
There is no sane way to query the personality flags of arbitrary process
from userspace. This adds the flags to the /proc/$pid/status file.
For example, to detect READ_IMPLIES_EXEC:

$ ./32bit-sleeper &
[1] 6732
$ grep ^Pers /proc/6732/status
Personality: 00000000
$ execstack -s 32bit-sleeper
$ ./32bit-slepper &
[2] 6735
$ grep ^Pers /proc/6735/status
Personality: 00040000
