Subject[PATCH] add buddyinfo /proc entry
Not _another_ proc entry!

The following patch originally by Martin Bligh exports some
information about the buddy allocator.

Each column of numbers represents the number of pages of that order
which are available. In this case, there are 5 chunks of
2^2*PAGE_SIZE available in ZONE_DMA, and 101 chunks of 2^4*PAGE_SIZE
availble in ZONE_NORMAL, etc... This information can give you a good
idea about how fragmented memory is and give you a clue as to how big
of an area you can safely allocate.

Node 0, zone DMA 0 4 5 4 4 3 ...
Node 0, zone Normal 1 0 0 1 101 8 ...
Node 0, zone HighMem 2 0 0 1 1 0 ...
