Description of problem:
vm.txt in Documentation/sysctl doesn't include following parameters.
- no more buffermem in RHEL3 kernel.
- pagecache section's explanation is bit old.
The RHEL3 kernel doesn't have "buffermem".
The RHEL3 kernel is 2.4, not a 2.0.
These are all documentation issue.
So I put severity of this call as "Low".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Read /usr/src/linux-2.4/Documentations/sysctl/vm.txt
