rc-ng problem and kernel threaded procs = [procname]

i think I have found a problem with rc-ng scripts and procnames
with brackets (e.g. kernel threads!).

Brackets [] are ignored, process will not be found and is regarded
as "not running". This breaks stop,status functions of rcng. The
following patch allows brackets in variable procname rc-ng scripts.
Maybe someone can review and fix this issue.

It was relevant for me when using [mysqld].
