Subject[PATCH 3.2.0-rc1 2/3] MM hook for page allocation and release
Date
That is required by Used Memory Meter (UMM) pseudo-device
to track memory utilization in system. It is expected that
hook MUST be very light to prevent performance impact
on the hot allocation path. Accuracy of number managed pages
does not expected to be absolute but fact of allocation or
deallocation must be registered.
