_Don't_

proc_register() is dead. Use create_proc_read_entry() instead.

Folks, support of the static procfs entries is gone and it will not be
back. Any initializer for struct proc_dir_entry is a LARTable offense. So
is kmalloc(sizeof(struct proc_dir_entry),...) and its ilk. You do it - you
suffer.
