When the prototype parameter name matches a local variable, the C compiler
(and lint) whine about clashes between names in local/global namespace.

2 ways to fix this are to "protect" the prototype argument names with the
"_", or to remove the argument name altogether.

proc.h has no clear guidance, in that recent commits don't stick to
the established style of the file. Some newish prototypes have a
mixture of named/unnamed args in the same function. While I was
making all prototypes' args named, I protected them.

I'd like to fix the warnings, and I'd like the file to be consistent
WRT argument naming.

There is a move to fix lint(1) warnings.
