    Looks good! A few suggestions....

    Might want to add support for /boot/System.map containing the version number
    (eg: /boot/System.map-`uname -r` ), if /boot/System.map doesn't exist, before
    just dropping out with an error.

    For clarity, you might want to invert the "address function ....." line to
    separate the header from the actual displayed data (like top does).

    Having the total up in the header instead of at the end of the data might also
    be useful (eg: next to ticks perhaps?) as it's really a waste of a display
    line for 1 number.

    Also a little more verbosity in the error messages would be good.

    eg:
    /proc/profile not found:
    You need to enable profiling support in your kernel to use kerneltop
    /proc/profile Permission Denied:
    You need to be root to run kerneltop

    Hope these comments are useful.
