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.
