Fuse the proclist into the root node
* dircat.c, dircat.h: New files, merge directories. * Makefile: Add the dircat module. * main.c: Use dircat to merge the proclist into the root directory, instead of having it as a stand-alone one. * procfs.h, procfs.c: Add a "refresh hack" to have the contents of the root directory recreated on each request. * proclist.c (proclist_make_node): Enable the hack in question.
