Subject[patch 42/50] proc: calculate the correct /proc/<pid> link count
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------
From: Vegard Nossum <vegard.nossum@gmail.com>

upstream commit: aed5417593ad125283f35513573282139a8664b5

This patch:

commit e9720acd728a46cb40daa52c99a979f7c4ff195c
Author: Pavel Emelyanov <xemul@openvz.org>
Date: Fri Mar 7 11:08:40 2008 -0800

[NET]: Make /proc/net a symlink on /proc/self/net (v3)

introduced a /proc/self/net directory without bumping the corresponding
link count for /proc/self.

This patch replaces the static link count initializations with a call that
counts the number of directory entries in the given pid_entry table
whenever it is instantiated, and thus relieves the burden of manually
keeping the two in sync.
