The /proc directory is not a regular file directory. It is a pseudo file system that is created by the kernel. A file in the /proc directory does not actually exist, but is created by the kernel on the fly as it is needed. If a section does not exist there that you expected, you probably don't have a module loaded into the kernel.
One other thought, it may not be a great idea using characters in your directory names that have a special meaning to the shell, such as the '|' vertical bar character, which is the pipe symbol.
