Unfortunately I adopted procinfo too late, testing was already in freeze, and
new upstream are rejected by the release-team.

From 1:2.0.208-1 procinfo was replaced by procinfo-ng, the old procinfo in
testing/stable is completely wrong, broken on 64bit platforms, many features are
broken, other features are pointless on 2.6 kernels (cat /proc/filesystems, done
as a every 2 seconds poll?)
