I take "/dev/kpmap is read-only and global between kernel and userland"
to mean that /dev/kpmap does not need protection against being
used for leaking information to processes that shouldn't be
able to look up certain bits from the kernel's memory space.
Other kernels had to had options to require super user privileges
for similar devices.

Well "shared memory space" sounds like a public area I suppose.
