Hi Eric,

Sorry for the late reply! So I've tested the patch and it does what I expect it
to do, i.e. it places the correct path as the content of /proc/<pid>/fd/<n>.
However, if I'm correct not in all cases. But I need to confirm this first and I
didn't want to start pointless discussions before having something reliable.

The reason for the late reply is that I was investigating some other "weirdness"
related to this patch which also - I believe - touches on the bind-mount
escaping you mentioned in your previous mail. It relates to an idea I had in
mind for a while now but never thought through sufficiently. I hope to find some
time on the weekend to think about this more clearly. I had hoped to bundle this
up with my testing but didn't get around to it.
