+Description: Kernel Samepage Merging daemon sysfs interface
+
+ full_scans: how many times all mergeable areas have been
+ scanned.
+
+ pages_shared: how many shared pages are being used.
+
+ pages_sharing: how many more sites are sharing them i.e. how
+ much saved.
+
+ pages_to_scan: how many present pages to scan before ksmd goes
+ to sleep.
+
+ pages_unshared: how many pages unique but repeatedly checked
+ for merging.
+
+ pages_volatile: how many pages changing too fast to be placed
+ in a tree.
+
+ run: write 0 to disable ksm, read 0 while ksm is disabled.
+ write 1 to run ksm, read 1 while ksm is running.
+ write 2 to disable ksm and unmerge all its pages.
+
+ sleep_millisecs: how many milliseconds ksm should sleep between
+ scans.
