  No, it was a workload characterization utility that mounted procfs
under a temp directory (I discovered the bug when I was trying to
compile it under FreeBSD 7 in order to make a port for of it).  I doubt
any amd users would be affected by the bug because most people probably
don't automount procfs or fdescfs.
