using old style /proc/pci and /dev/cua?

Hello guys,

In recent 2.1.x kernels, when a user process accesses /proc/pci I get a
message that such and such uses obsolete /proc/pci. Ok, that is fine...
but why do I only get the first message, i.e. if some other process does
it as well, nothing is logged.
Shouldn't it warn user about everyone/everything using the old semantics?

Try cat /proc/pci ; dmesg ; vi /proc/pci ; dmesg and you will see that
access by cat(1) is logged while the access by vi(1) is not.

The same thing happens with /dev/cua? devices, i.e. only the first attempt
is logged.
