Synopsis: linprocfs can be mounted on top of itself many times

State-Changed-From-To: open->analyzed

State-Changed-Why: 
This is because /compat is a symlink to /usr/compat; mount(8) does a
check to see whether the filesystem is mounted before mounting the
filesystem, and it is being fooled by the symlink - I suspect that you
have the mount point specified as /compat/linux/proc in your fstab - if
you change that to /usr/compat/linux/proc then the reported behaviour is
corrected.

I doubt that it's worth changing mount(8) to correct this, but will
leave this as "analyzed" in case anybody thinks it is.
