Subject: Bug#224215: incorrect /proc timestamp
The timestamp of /proc after mounting the proc filesystem is fixed at
Jan 1, 1970 (likely initialized to 0 in Unix time and then never set).
This causes problems for some distributions running as UML systems
using the user-mode-linux kernel, including Debian, which relies on the
timestamp of /proc to clear out the contents of /var/run and
/var/lock. Comments in the "bootmisc.sh" initscript indicate that the
/proc timestamp is normally the time at which /proc is mounted.
I have also seen this issue with every other UML kernel to which I
have access, and so I believe it is probably an upstream bug.
