Eh, it was a legit question, not a request for reverting!

Yeah... I assumed that since we had that handling in proc-service.c
that mips-linux could have user code above 0x80000000. If that's not
the case on irix as well (it seems likely, since those KSEG
things are hardware-decided mappings?), then we don't have to worry
about this here. In addition, these warning have surely been
there for a long while, it's just that up until recently procfs.c
was always built with -Werror disabled.
