I'll send this in to Linus later this week, to make life easier for
everyone. Or Greg can grab it.


From: "K. Y. Srinivasan" <kys@microsoft.com>
Subject: mm: export a function to get vm committed memory

It will be useful to be able to access global memory commitment from
device drivers. On the Hyper-V platform, the host has a policy engine to
balance the available physical memory amongst all competing virtual
machines hosted on a given node. This policy engine is driven by a number
of metrics including the memory commitment reported by the guests. The
balloon driver for Linux on Hyper-V will use this function to retrieve
guest memory commitment. This function is also used in Xen self
ballooning code.
