After a little digging, it only appears on files that contains just an
integer value. When asked to read with a non-null offset (*ppos != 0),
__do_proc_dointvec() just returns 0 (meaning an EOF) as shown on .
I'm aware that the issue isn't strictly a dash one, since it has the
right to read one character at a time. But since fixing procfs to be
conforming to POSIX isn't a realistic option, would it be possible to
have a workaround that doesn't involve an external tool like cat(1) ?
