New proc entry under /proc/[pid]

I think I found:
static const struct pid_entry tgid_base_stuff[] at fs/proc/base.c has all
/proc/[pid] entries.

But unfortunately it does not use create_proc_entry function, and I'm trying
to create a new syscall that creates a new proc_entry for the caller
Adding a new element in tgid_base_stuff[] makes the things more complicated
than simply call a create_proc_entry function.

Is there another way to do it ?
