Fix nasty /proc vulnerability
We have a bad interaction with both the kernel and user space being able to change some of the /proc file status. This fixes the most obvious part of it, but I expect we'll also make it harder for users to modify even their "own" files in /proc. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
