I did some Git digging - that ptrace check for /proc/$pid/mem
read/write goes all the way back to the beginning of written human
history, aka Linux v2.6.12-rc2.
I researched the fragmented history of the stone ages as well, i
checked out numerous cave paintings, and while much was lost, i was
able to recover this old fragment of a clue in the cave called
'patch-2.3.27', carbon-dated back as far as the previous millenium

This series is the core mount and lookup infrastructure from union
mounts, split up into small, easily digestible, bikeshed-friendly
pieces. All of the (non-documentation, non-whitespace) patches in
this series are less than 140 lines long. It's like Twitter for
VFS developers should be able to review each of these patches in 3
minutes or less. If it takes you longer, email me and I'll post a
video on YouTube making fun of you.

Well, after things were basically working, we started fixing all
the real bugs reported by an updated checkpatch.pl
Any lines that obviously should have been longer than 80 chars were
joined back to their proper length, and curly braces were moved to
their proper locations. Tabs were all changed to 3 spaces each, we
couldn't quite decide on 2 vs 4.
After that was done, we forward ported devfs. Proper disc
management code in Linux was long overdue.
