Well... I see what it's trying to do, but it's a bullshit. Look: it's from
if (current->files && atomic_read(&current->files->count) > 1)
sbytes += kobjsize(current->files);
bytes += kobjsize(current->files);
Now, what we really have is size of current->files (fixed and not too large)
+ if descriptor table is too large to be embedded,
size of current->files->fdt
size of current->files->fdt->fd
size of current->files->fdt->open_fds/->close_on_exec
And the second term there can be *large*, so if we are really serious about
taking descriptor table footprint into account, we'd better take care of
that too. I'm not sure that we want to, though - note that we do that only
on nommu targets...

So what's that code really trying to achieve?
