Lsof is broken.
I already wrote Poul about it, but he hasn't seen my email yet, I guess.
I've been busy, your email is sitting in my inbox somewhere, to be dealt
with when I have time.
Does anyone know the direction this was going in, and what visibility the
namecache is intended to have?
The namecache is intended to have no visibility from userland.
The fact that lsof (with the aid of libkvm) abuses it doesn't change
The lsof functionality should in my opinion be added to the system,
and the necessary hooks should be added to the kernel using sysctl.
As a short term fix, you can remove the "static", but take this as
a first warning: the namecache implementation is NOT an API.
