Subject[PATCH] mm/vmstats: add counters for the page frag cache
Date
There was a memory leak problem when we did stressful test
on Android device.
The root cause of this was from page_frag_cache alloc
and it was very hard to find out.

We add to count the page frag allocation and free with function call.
The gap between pgfrag_alloc and pgfrag_free is good to to calculate
for the amount of page.
The gap between pgfrag_alloc_calls and pgfrag_free_calls is for
sub-indicator.
They can see trends of memory usage during the test.
Without it, it's difficult to check page frag usage so I believe we
should add it.
