SubjectRe: [PATCH] A new entry for /proc
Hi,

Here are some values about the experiments. The values are the elapsed
real time used by the process, in seconds. Each row corresponds to
10000 cat /proc/pid/smaps command.
Old smaps
19.41
19.31
21.38
20.16

New smaps
16.82
16.75
16.75
16.79


BR,

Mauricio Lin.
