Subject[PATCH v2] mm: emit tracepoint when RSS changes by threshold
Date
Useful to track how RSS is changing per TGID to detect spikes in RSS and
memory hogs. Several Android teams have been using this patch in various
kernel trees for half a year now. Many reported to me it is really
useful so I'm posting it upstream.

Initial patch developed by Tim Murray. Changes I made from original patch:
o Prevent any additional space consumed by mm_struct.
o Keep overhead low by checking if tracing is enabled.
o Add some noise reduction and lower overhead by emitting only on
threshold changes.
