    Bollocks. The only practical difference between procfs in 4.x and 5.x
    is that it is not mounted by default in 5.x.

    To the original poster, removing PSEUDOFS and PROCFS from the kernel
    achieves absolutely nothing, as mount_procfs will simply load the
    module. You need to unmount /proc, remove the corresponding line from
    /etc/fstab, and read a book or two about Unix system administration
    (Nemeth, Snyder, Seebass, Hein is a good start)
