    No, it'd have to be 4 in this case: "1" from "/proc", "." from "/proc/1",
    ".." from "/proc/1/fd" and ".." from "/proc/1/task" all point to "/proc/1".
    It should always be the number of real subdirectories plus two.

    Just copy this directory recursively to a real filesystem and check the
    hardlink count there.
