Subject2.5.36-mm1

url: http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/patches/2.5/2.5.36/2.5.36-mm1/

A reminder that this changes /proc files. Updated top(1) and
vmstat(1) source is available at http://surriel.com/procps/

A simple coding bug in the VM has been fixed. This has increased
swapout bandwidth and halved the runtime for memset(malloc(huge_amount))
type benchmarks.

An initial version of the sard accounting patch is included.

Some VM changes which clean up some code and attempt to sort out
some undesirable dependencies between the direct-reclaim and kswapd
functions has been added.
