    But it's not debugging. Or are you saying all memory state information
    in /proc/meminfo is debugging information? I would say it is generic
    memory state tracking, similar to VmallocUsed or Slab: or NFS_Unstable:
    e.g. I would expect a machine to go slower if all direct mapping pages
    are split due to increase TLB misses and that information is generally
    useful and should not be forced into some debugging ghetto.
