Subject: fs/proc/generic.c: fix incorrect pde_is_permanent check

Currently the pde_is_permanent() check is being run on root multiple times
rather than on the next proc directory entry.  This looks like a
copy-paste error.  Fix this by replacing root with next.

Fixes: d919b33dafb3 ("proc: faster open/read/close with "permanent" files")
