    net: delete /proc THIS_MODULE references · 96890d62

    /proc has been ignoring struct file_operations::owner field for 10 years.
    Specifically, it started with commit 786d7e16
    ("Fix rmmod/read/write races in /proc entries"). Notice the chunk where
    inode->i_fop is initialized with proxy struct file_operations for
    regular files:
    	-               if (de->proc_fops)
    	-                       inode->i_fop = de->proc_fops;
    	+               if (de->proc_fops) {
    	+                       if (S_ISREG(inode->i_mode))
    	+                               inode->i_fop = &proc_reg_file_ops;
    	+                       else
    	+                               inode->i_fop = de->proc_fops;
    	+               }
    VFS stopped pinning module at this point.
