Doc Text:
With the introduction of VmFlags in the kernel smaps interface, the pmap tool could no longer reliably process the content due to format differences of the VmFlags entry. As a consequence, pmap reported incorrect values of totals to the user. The underlying source code has been patched, and pmap now works as expected.
