Until cgroups are ready we probably will need to add a sysfs node to
report the total dmabuf pool size and I think that would cover our
current accounting need here.
As I mentioned, not including dmabuf pools into MemAvailable would
affect that stat and I'm wondering if pools should be considered as
part of MemAvailable or not. Since MemAvailable includes SReclaimable
I think it makes sense to include them but maybe there are other
considerations that I'm missing?
