    i've made up _my_ mind.  i don't think it is necessary.  i want to make sure
    i haven't missed the obvious, and give people a heads up that a legacy

    because it serves no purpose.  we have to defend every line of code in
    the lsm patch when we submit it for inclusion to 2.5.  and i dont' think
    there is a justification for this export.  the nproc module exports it's
    interface, this is surely an artifact of using the capability module as
    a template.  so before this erroneous export proliferates i propose we 
    remove it.
