ps(1) patch for FreeBSD 6-CURRENT

I have finished a preliminary patchset based on Pawel’s (kern/54604), which will make ps -e usable under FreeBSD’s recent versions, without having procfs mounted.

My patchset has introduced reduced security IMO (due to my merge and rooted from recent removal of ps_argsopen sysctl, I’m not sure why this change has been taken place) so I will have to review the code more carefully. Maybe I need to introduce more sysctl?

The complete patchset is not published yet. I have sent a copy to junsu so he can test it on Alpha.
