    This is potentially quite useful. I'd be interested in what others think of
    the idea and implementation.

    Put extern headers in .h files, not in .c.

    The identifier `page' is usually used for pointers to struct page. Please
    pick another name?

    We prefer to omit the braces if they enclose only a single statement.

    hm, that's a bit bizarre. Isn't there a printf construct which will do the
    right-alignment for you? %8u? (See meminfo_read_proc())
