	proc is a pseudo-filesystem used to represent various
configuration and runtime information about the Linux kernel, and anything
else its various subsystems choose report. If you try to mount /dev/fd0 as
type proc on /mnt, (mount -t proc /dev/fd0 /mnt), under /mnt you'll see
exactly the same thing as you see under /proc. The block device is just
ignored.
