SubjectRe: [PATCH v10 7/9] proc: move hidepid values to uapi as they are user interface to mount

I will just say that I do not understand exporting this to the uapi
headers. Why do we want to export the enumeration names?

I understand that the values are uapi. This looks like it will make it
difficult to make changes that rename enumeration values to make
the code more readable.

Given that this patchset goes immediately to using string enumerated
values, I also don't understand the point of exporting
HIDEPID_NOT_PTRACEABLE. I don't think we need to ever let
people use the numeric value.

My sense is that if we are switching to string values we should
just leave the existing numeric values as backwards compatiblity
and not do anything to make them easier to use.
