Sat May 16 02:08:59 UTC 2015


Add a new function proc_create_mount_point that when used to creates a
directory that can not be added to.

Add a new function is_empty_pde to test if a function is a mount
point.

Update the code to use make_empty_dir_inode when reporting
a permanently empty directory to the vfs.

Update the code to not allow adding to permanently empty directories.

Update /proc/openprom and /proc/fs/nfsd to be permanently empty directories.
