CXhrist.

If you want to open a /proc file, then open a /proc file. Don't use
pidfd_open().

Just open /proc/<pid>/

Then you can use openat() to open whatever sub-files you want.

You have two choices: either you use /proc, or you don't. Don't mix the two.

And no, we are *NOT* making pidfd_open() into some "let's expose /proc
even when it's not mounted" horror. Seriously. That's disgusting,
wrong, insecure and stupid.
