Didn't know that this require a lock, but i will fix this.

This change to the user interface was suggest by ingo molnar. I will add
the sample output in the next version.

Good idea, but the proc.txt documentation about /proc/<pid>/status (line
140) and the contents of the /proc/<pid>/stat file (line 192) is
complete outdated. And there is also no documentation
about /proc/<pid>/*maps.

So i want to try to fix the missing documentation in proc.txt in a
separate patch. Will this okay by you?

Greetings
