SubjectRe: [PATCH] connector: send event on write to /proc/[pid]/comm

Is connector really useful? I am under the impression that connector
did not get much if any real uptake of users.

I know the impression that connector is not used and that there
are generally better mechanisms for what it provides has led to
connector not getting any namespace support. Similarly bugs
like the one you just have found persist.

If connector is actually useful then it is worth fixing little things
like this. But if no one is really using connector I suspect a better
patch direction would be to start figuring out how to deprecate and
remove connector.
