Otherwise you'll get a nice crash at the corresponding assertion checks, see https://cs.chromium.org/chromium/src/sandbox/linux/services/thread_helpers.cc?l=41&rcl=90c6c958243e775074d81e19c204f196d8e76990 and https://cs.chromium.org/chromium/src/sandbox/linux/services/thread_helpers.cc?l=44&rcl=90c6c958243e775074d81e19c204f196d8e76990. (Actually, not so nice crash, for some reason most Chromium assertion checks do not produce any error messages whatsoever.)

I've glanced at this, and it seems somewhat non-trivial.  The problem here is that pseudofs(5), which is what linprocfs(5) uses underneath, does not support nested PFS_PROCDEP directories; they trigger a KASSERT, and if you remove that, you'll get a nested lock attempt.
