Subject[patch] 2.6.8.1: display committed memory limit and available in meminfo
The following patch will have the committed memory limit (per the current 
overcommit ratio) and the amount of memory remaining under this limit displayed
in meminfo.

It's presently somewhat difficult to use the strict memory overcommit settings
as it's somewhat difficult to determine the amount of memory remaining under the
cap. This patch would make using strict overcommit a good bit simpler. Does such
an addition seem reasonable?

Thank you,

Frank.
