This is not called by proc_root_init.
It seems be called by timer interrupt
(I confirmed it by viewing trap number in
interrupt context with ICE).

As long as I investigate the problem,
proc_root_init is called twice.
At first time, it's called from
start_kernel in init/main.c.
Second case, it seems to be called by some kind of
init call facility.

proc_root_init is not init_call function, I could not
figure out concretely why it called twice.

I will investigate the problem as long as I can.

I wishes this report to become your help.
