proc: fix the threaded /proc/self
Long ago when the CLONE_THREAD support first went it someone thought it would be wise to point /proc/self at /proc/<tgid> instead of /proc/<pid>. Given that /proc/<tgid> can return information about a very different task (if enough things have been unshared) then our current process /proc/<tgid> seems blatantly wrong. So far I have yet to think up an example where the current behavior would be advantageous, and I can see several places where it is seriously non-intuitive. We may be stuck with the current broken behavior for backwards compatibility reasons but lets try fixing our ancient bug for the 2.6.25 time frame and see if anyone screams. Signed-off-by: Eric W.
