/proc/dahdi is created when dahdi is loaded. Each span N that is loaded
creates /proc/dahdi/N .

See the README:
and while we're at it: the following sections about the sysfs interface.

/proc and /sys are generated by the kernel. No script generates them. A
script may trigger the load of those modules. Those modules will be
loaded typically in the dahdi init script, if not loaded earlier by
hotplug (if the DAHDI hardware driver is not blacklisted).
