    SubjectRe: [PATCH][5/8] proc: export mlocked pages info through "/proc/meminfo: Wired"
    The name "Wired" could be changed to which one most kids think better
    fits the job.

    I choosed "Wired" for:
    "Locked" will conflict with PG_locked bit of a pags.
    "Pinned" indicates a short-term lock,so not fits the job too.
