mlock() and ramfs usage are pretty easy to track down. /proc/$pid/smaps
or /proc/meminfo can show us mlock() and good ol' 'df' and friends can
show us ramfs the extent of pinned memory.

With these, if we see "Unevictable" in meminfo bump up, we at least have
a starting point to find the cause.

Do we have an equivalent for i915?
