mm: oom analysis: add shmem vmstat
Recently we encountered OOM problems due to memory use of the GEM cache. Generally a large amuont of Shmem/Tmpfs pages tend to create a memory shortage problem. We often use the following calculation to determine the amount of shmem pages: shmem = NR_ACTIVE_ANON + NR_INACTIVE_ANON - NR_ANON_PAGES however the expression does not consider isolated and mlocked pages. This patch adds explicit accounting for pages used by shmem and tmpfs.
