to monitor usage statistics (range of used resources).
this value will be usefull when ubstat will be added.
this field probably would be more logical to add later,
but since it is part of user space interface it is left here
for not changing API later.

I answered to Andi that it is left from prev patch set which used it in proc.c
will be removed
thanks for noting this!!!

BUG_ON doesn't print much information :)
