Proprietary module bcmprocfs

The module does not seem to have a real functional purpose other than providing some ip configuration space for dhcpc, and some command line modifications in the process table.

In order to get the Broadcom variant of dhcpc working you'll need to create a sybolic link in the procfs. The code below to creates a symlink via the bcmprocfs module:

for example:

bcmprocfs_ioctl .ppp0 nas_8_35

creates a symbolic link from /proc/var/fyi/wan/.ppp0 → /proc/var/fyi/wan/nas_8_35.
