SubjectRe: reproduceable GPF in 2.0.23 with Quota when unmounting /proc

I'm a little confused about this whole issue. Is there any legitimate
situation where unmounting /proc would be useful?

Obviously, you can't unmount it unless your root, and root can always do
lots of things that would cause an oops or downright crash the machine.

So, why is this really a bug?
