[PATCH] /proc entries and renaming interfaces

Sorry about the last patch.  Was having difficulties getting the diff to
ignore the whitespace I wanted ignored and so was playing around with the
options.  Looks like I forgot to include unified when I made the final
patch.  Attached is the unified version.

Thanks,
Ian Rawley.
