    SubjectHow to mount /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc ?

    OK, I've been struggling with this (off and on) since Tuesday, and I give up.
    Since going from 2.4.3-pre4 to 2.4.2-ac20 I have been unable to use binfmt_misc.
    Thanks to a hint from Michael Meissner, I found a mention in the release notes
    for 2.4.2-ac12 that binfmt_misc should be mounted separately. However, I still
    have a problem.

    The release notes specify this:

    mount -t binfmt_misc none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc

    but this doesn't work because

    mount: mount point /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc does not exist

    And if I try to mkdir -p /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc with /proc mounted I get

    mkdir: cannot create directory `/proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc': No such file or

    which makes sense, I guess, because proc isn't a "real" filesystem. So how do I
    get binfmt_misc mounted?
