[PATCH] proc: Remove unnecessary and misleading assignments from proc_pid_make_inode

The removed fields are already set by proc_alloc_inode.  Initializing them in
proc_alloc_inode implies they need it for proper cleanup.  At least ei->pde
was not set on all paths making it look like proc_alloc_inode was buggy.  So
just remove the redundant assignments.
