I disagree, for I use the process list for understanding what / how many
processes are consuming what kind of memory (without crashing the system)
for anomaly detection purpose. Although we can't dump memory consumed by
e.g. file descriptors, disabling dump_tasks() loose that clue, and is
problematic for me.
