Ahh, great. I'll change the ordering. Should help clean up the code a bit
and make adding the features I want easier. :)

Another question:

Inact_dirty: 21516 kB
Inact_laundry: 65612 kB
Inact_clean: 19812 kB

These three are seperate lists in rmap, and are equal to "Inactive:" in the
-aa vm.

Inact_target: 150080 kB

This doesn't account any memory, but is only what the VM is trying to size
the sum of the three lists above.

Do I have that right?

I'm going to graph active and inactive for lrrd, and I need to know how to
map the different values when it is run on a rmap kernel.

To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
