Subject[PATCH 2.6.11] [corrected] Documentation: remove super-{nr, max} to reflect fs/super.c
The patch updates the documentation for /proc. super-nr and super-max have
been dropped from the kernel since 2.4.9 due to minor numbering issues.
This change was not documented in the documentation.
The original patch submitted just a while ago had the files
reversed. Sorry about that.

Represents the number of free inodes. Ie. The number of inuse inodes is

-super-nr and super-max
-Again, super block structures are allocated by the kernel, but not freed. The
-file super-max contains the maximum number of super block handlers, where
-super-nr shows the number of currently allocated ones.
-Every mounted file system needs a super block, so if you plan to mount lots of
-file systems, you may want to increase these numbers.
