Subject[PATCH 0/29] proc entries creation race
This set of patches fixes an proc ->open'less usage due to ->proc_fops
flip in the most part of the kernel code. The original OOPS is described
in the commit 2d3a4e3666325a9709cc8ea2e88151394e8f20fc.

In addition to this, proc_create_data is introduced to fix reading from
proc without PDE->data. The race is basically the same as above.

create_proc_entries is replaced in the entire kernel code as new method
is also simply better.
