Thanks for the commit.

I misunderstood sysctl behavior.

I saw that original (before r335939) setproctitle(3) calls sysctl like this.

sysctl([CTL_KERN, KERN_PROC, KEN_PROC_ARGS, getpid()], ...)

This code works in capability mode all the time (independent of r335939).
I thought calling sysctl("kern.ps_strings") was also safe in capability mode.
But, the sysctl is allowed to write only...

Yes, I don't see any other problems for now.
I will close this PR.
