proc: Rename in proc_inode rename sysctl_inodes sibling_inodes
I about to need and use the same functionality for pid based inodes and there is no point in adding a second field when this field is already here and serving the same purporse. Just give the field a generic name so it is clear that it is no longer sysctl specific. Also for good measure initialize sibling_inodes when proc_inode is initialized. Signed-off-by: Eric W.
