    proc: less LOCK operations during lookup
    Pseudo-code for lookup effectively is:
        LOCK kernel
        LOCK proc_subdir_lock
                find PDE
                UNLOCK proc_subdir_lock
                get inode
                LOCK proc_subdir_lock
                goto unlock
        UNLOCK proc_subdir_lock
        UNLOCK kernel
    We can get rid of LOCK/UNLOCK pair after getting inode simply by jumping
    to unlock_kernel() directly.
