We don't really need to export struct proc now that we have struct
kinfo_proc, do we?  The few userland libraries and programs that still
need it (basically libkvm and gdb - libkvm consumers such as top only
need to have it declared, not defined) could define something like
_NEED_STRUCT_PROC before including <sys/proc.h>.

One other thing worth pointing out is that there is no reason for
<sys/user.h> to include <sys/proc.h>.  It just needs to declare struct
proc as an opaque structure.  Also, <sys/user.h> currently pulls in a
lot of other headers such as <sys/_lock.h> and <sys/_mutex.h> that are
needed only because <sys/proc.h> depends on them.
