Subject[PATCH] buffermem counter tweaks in proc

Hello everyone,

A few people have seen free report bogus numbers for the number of used
buffers in the output of free.

Andrea pointed out this was probably because we now increment
both buffermem_pages and page_cache_size when getblk triggers
a page allocation.

This patch tweaks /proc/meminfo to deal take that into account:
