On my system there is nothing (except, the programs from procps itself) using libprocps, so I think we can update this for LFS.

If something in BLFS needs the old libprocps library we can add it as a new BLFS package.

  • Rename pwait to pidwait

LFS bootscript does not use pwait command.

One test, free with commit, fails on my system. free --commit outputs:

               total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available
Mem:        32707036     4526000     2158164     6449372    26022872    21257008
Swap:              0           0           0
Comm:       16353516    19282736    -2929220

Note the negative value. Not sure the reason but my /proc/meminfo really says:

CommitLimit:    16353516 kB
Committed_AS:   19178268 kB

So maybe it's my kernel issue.
