Subject[PATCH] proc: task_mmu: show page size in /proc/<pid>/numa_maps
This patch introduces 'pagesize' line element to /proc/<pid>/numa_maps
report file in order to help disambiguating the size of pages that are
backing memory areas mapped by a task. When the VMA backing page size
is observed different from kernel's default PAGE_SIZE, the new element
is printed out to complement report output. This is specially useful to
help differentiating between HUGE and GIGANTIC page VMAs.

This patch is based on Dave Hansen's proposal and reviewer's follow ups
taken from this dicussion:
