    Can you run a comparison benchmark between atomic rss and anon_rss and
    the sloppy rss with the rss and anon_rss in seperate cachelines. I am not
    sure that it is important to seperate the two into seperate lines, just
    rss and anon_rss from the lock and sema.

    If I have the time over the weekend, I might try this myself. If not, can
    you give it a try.
