Hmmm. My system is 4.11 so that would explain /proc. Could /net and
/host be related to running apache or samba? I did not knowingly create
these "devices" I haven't been as vigilant as I could have been for
security (one of my reasons for an upcoming reinstall), so there is a
possibility of the server being hijacked...? But I don't want to assume
the worst on false concersns..
