hey charles!

is privfree() broken? it appears it chains the slots together,
but only the calling process will get a correct chain. the chain
head (privs) is shared (in bss) and seen by all process so the
others will get corrupted chains (chain link is private) no?

i wonder what the intended use for privfree() was. theres no
code using it.
