Bug description:
  Binary package hint: coreutils

  When upgrading the buildd chroot tarballs, I got errors such as:

  rm: cannot remove `/var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/control': Function not implemented
  dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/dash_0.5.4-6ubuntu1_ia64.deb 
   subprocess rm cleanup returned error exit status 1
  Errors were encountered while processing:
  E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

  Mounting /proc and trying again seemed to resolve the issue, but this
  is the first time I've ever seen such behavior.

  In the past, I've filed (and fixed) bugs on packages in base that
  would bomb postinsts if /proc wasn't mounted, so it seems to be a
  pretty nasty regression that coreutils now depends on /proc.
