SubjectRe: add dynamic registration to procfs_syms.c

I had a look at that too, and I think there is more to do then add the
exports. /usr/src/linux/fs/proc/:get_root_array() has a switch statement
with all known entries in /proc.
switch (type) {
case PROC_LOADAVG:
return get_loadavg(page);
...

As a dynamic entered /proc/entry isn't in that list, we've got a problem.

But I am looking for it to, to add the registers of my SMC-SuperIO chip to
/proc. These registers need a special mechanisme to read out, doable
sensible only in kernel mode. And to write that device, writing that as a
module would handy ... :-)
