2.3.99-pre?+, /proc/mounts

Just in case no one else has noticed, /proc/mounts has been broken for a
while.. I know it's broken in 2.3.99-pre9+ (to 2.4.0-test1-ac19), but
it's probably been broken since before then..

here's a sample /proc/mounts, so you can see what I mean:

none / shm rw 0 0
none pipe: pipefs rw 0 0
none / proc rw 0 0
none / devpts rw 0 0
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 / ext2 rw 0 0
none /dev devfs rw 0 0
none /proc proc rw 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts rw 0 0
none /var/shm shm rw 0 0

The first four entries are obviously bunk, as I'm actually using this
system... This makes things difficult, because various programs check
where proc is mounted so they still work if you put it in an odd place --
this isn't a bad idea, but if you look at my corrupted /proc/mounts,
you'll notice proc is mounted on / (it isn't).. The result is confusion ;)
I've made a real /etc/mtab file for now (uggh), but I'd much rather keep
it as a link to /proc/mounts..
