Subject[PATCH 1/3] mm: introduce NR_INDIRECTLY_RECLAIMABLE_BYTES
Date
This patch introduces a concept of indirectly reclaimable memory
and adds the corresponding memory counter and /proc/vmstat item.

Indirectly reclaimable memory is any sort of memory, used by
the kernel (except of reclaimable slabs), which is actually
reclaimable, i.e. will be released under memory pressure.

The counter is in bytes, as it's not always possible to
count such objects in pages. The name contains BYTES
by analogy to NR_KERNEL_STACK_KB.
