I think it's not unrelated. Of course, init process doesn't consume
lots of memory but might consume more memory than old as time goes by
or some BUG although it is unlikely.

I think whether we print information of init or not isn't a big deal.
But we have been done it until now and you are trying to change it.
At least, we need some description why you want to remove it.
Making confusion? Hmm.. I don't think it make many people confusion.

Looks good to adding story about racing. but my point was "total_vm
and rss sizes do not exist for tasks with no mm". But I don't want to
bother you due to trivial.
It depends on you. :)

Thanks, Kosaki.
