Subject[PATCH 05/13] Hide some of "struct elf_prstatus" behind #ifdef __KERNEL__
Date
This one scares me: while I can't find any system calls that directly
take this as an argument, a comment in <linux/ptrace.h>

"
Generic ptrace interface that exports the architecture specific
regsets using the corresponding NT_* types (which are also used in
the core dump). Please note that the NT_PRSTATUS note type in a
core dump contains a full 'struct elf_prstatus'. But the
user_regset for NT_PRSTATUS contains just the elf_gregset_t that is
the pr_reg field of 'struct elf_prstatus'. For all the other
user_regset flavors, the user_regset layout and the ELF core dump
note payload are exactly the same layout.
"

seems to indicate that it's possible to see this sometimes. Since
this would only be visible to userspace in a somewhat convoluted
manner, I'm going to try and keep it as it was.
