[CentOS] What process is "x 1 0"?

I took a look at the /proc listing and this is what is contained for both:

dr-xr-xr-x    3 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 .
dr-xr-xr-x  101 root root 0 Mar 28 04:17 ..
dr-xr-xr-x    2 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 attr
-r--------    1 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 auxv
-r--r--r--    1 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 cmdline
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 cwd
-r--------    1 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 environ
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 exe
dr-x------    2 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 fd
-rw-r--r--    1 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 loginuid
-r--------    1 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 maps
-rw-------    1 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 mem
-r--r--r--    1 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 mounts
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 root
-r--r--r--    1 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 stat
-r--r--r--    1 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 statm
-r--r--r--    1 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 status
dr-xr-xr-x    3 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 task
-r--r--r--    1 root root 0 Mar 29 11:58 wchan

Sorry if I'm being dense but I was just curious because this process shows
up in only 1 of my 2 CentOS installs (both are at 4.3).  This particular
machine is a newer Dell P4 SC420 whereas the other machine is an older 440BX
P3.  So perhaps this is a benign daemon for all the newer hardware that's in
the SC420 but I couldn't find any information about it (googling for "x 1 0"
returns a ton of useless links) so I was hoping to get more info here on the
mailing list.

Thanks.
