That's in effect what it does. It tests it by trying to open the
file. If that fails, it defaults to the old behaviour.

What I meant was it would be useful to get the information some
other way on FreeBSD etc if the proc file can't be read. Also,
I am not sure whether the proc file has the same format
on FreeBSD (it should also fail gracefully, but if /proc
is mounted on FreeBSD it could instead use whatever the
FreeBSD format is).
