/proc/<pid>/statm glitch in 2.0.33 and 2.1.97
/proc/<pid>/statm appears to always report 0 for 'lrs' (the fifth
number, which comments suggest has to do with how many pages of shared
libraries the process is using). I think this is because the get_statm()
routine in fs/proc/array.c is using an old and now obsolete test for
this. Here's a patch against 2.0.33 to change it to something deduced
from examining how task_mem() appears to do it.
Possibly the /proc/<pid>/statm interface is obsolete, but I hope not;
it appears to give some information not readily available from elsewhere
(particularly the total size vs resident pages information).
