1) Can u explain me the usage of different arguments to 	pf_create_file
() function ?

2) what is the use of PFS_PROCDEP in the following statement ?

 dir = pfs_create_dir(root, "pid",
            procfs_attr, NULL, PFS_PROCDEP);

3) there is no entry under /proc with the name "pid" .
Why is it so ?

4) And even though for some of the proc entries the permission given is
PFS_RDWR , the file is getting created with the read permission only .

What is the reason for this ?
