Subject[PATCH 4.9 08/51] proc: Remove empty line in /proc/self/status
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Guenter Roeck <>

If CONFIG_SECCOMP=n, /proc/self/status includes an empty line. This causes
the iotop application to bail out with an error message.

File "/usr/local/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/iotop/", line 196,
in parse_proc_pid_status
key, value = line.split(':\t', 1)
ValueError: need more than 1 value to unpack

The problem is seen in v4.9.y but not upstream because commit af884cd4a5ae6
("proc: report no_new_privs state") has not been backported to v4.9.y.
The backport of commit fae1fa0fc6cc ("proc: Provide details on speculation
flaw mitigations") tried to address the resulting differences but was
wrong, introducing the problem.

This patch only applies to v4.9.y. v4.4.y also needs to be fixed (see, but the fix
is slightly different. v4.14.y and later are not affected.
