If module removes proc directory while another process pins it
by chdir'ing to it, then subsequent recreation of proc entry and
all entries down the tree will not be visible to any process
until pinning process unchdir from directory and unpins everything.

Steps to reproduce:

	proc_mkdir("aaa", NULL);
	proc_create("aaa/bbb", ...);

		chdir("/proc/aaa");

	remove_proc_entry("aaa/bbb", NULL);
	remove_proc_entry("aaa", NULL);

	proc_mkdir("aaa", NULL);
	# inaccessible because "aaa" dentry still points
	# to the original "aaa".
	proc_create("aaa/bbb", ...);

Fix is to implement ->d_revalidate and ->d_delete.
