The sun JRE has started failing for me.  Study suggests:
1.  It wants to open /proc/self/stat
2.  This should exist, for linux compat programs.
3.  It is not being found by the java runtime.

It appears that, at some point, mount_procfs was changed to require
a "linux" option to work with the JVM.  When?  Why?  Was there a problem
with having /proc/self/stat always be there in the Linux format?

Neither man page appears to point out that the presence of the "stat" file
is dependent on the "linux" option.

Am I missing something obvious?  Should this have worked?
