I modified the process accounting in the kernel to also log size in
memory of processes, as well as the amount of i/o they did, and number of
swaps caused. These are simple patches, and the first two were present in
the original accounting patches. Somewhere along the line the facility to
log these items was dropped.

Anyone interested in my patches to both the kernel and the process
accounting suite should e-mail me.

On another note, it seems that there are many useful patches out there
not yet incorporated into the official kernel, so I might as well archive
them on my ftp site. Mail me if you want your patches mirrored!
