    SubjectRe: 2.3.14 shared mem in /proc/memnfo is zero

    nothing. To calc such information we should do a O(N) algorithm scanning
    all the mem_map array. Now si_meminfo runs in O(1). You have less
    information but after all the shared counter is just been screwed up by
    the page-buffer cache unification of 2.3.x since most page-cache pages now
    have the page count > 1 even if they live in cache (and they are not
    mapped in userspace memory).

    I am not the author of such change but I sure agree with it. (for
    debugging you have the shared information in SYSRQ+M, SYSRQ+M runs in O(N)
    as usual of course ;).
