Fair enough.

We should be pretty careful about what we put in meminfo - it's the
top-level, most-important procfs file and I expect that quite a lot of
userspace reads it with some frequency. We don't want to clutter it
up. /proc/vmstat is a suitable place for the less important info which
is more kernel developer oriented.

But CMATotal and CMAFree do pass the "should be in meminfo" test, IMO.
