Heh, I completely forgot about this. Thanks for picking it back up.

I sometimes wonder what 'numa_maps' purpose is any if we should have
_some_ kind of policy about what goes in there vs. smaps. numa_maps
seems to be turning in to smaps, minus the \n. :)

But that isn't the case for this patch. The "anon=50 dirty=50 N0=50"
output of numa_maps is wholly *useless* without either this patch or
some other mechanism to find out of hugetbfs memory is present. I think
that needs to make it in to the description.

I'm fine with the code, though. Feel free to add my acked-by.
