Description of problem:
On newer 2.4.18 kernels, MemShared in /proc/meminfo is always reported as zero
(0). Is there a reason shared memory isn't reported? This may not be a bug,
but a legitimate feature. Under 2.4. kernels, this value was typically
small, but never zero. It always seemed to low under those kernels as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cat /proc/meminfo
Actual Results: MemShared: 0 kB
Expected Results: MemShared: 52 kB
the cost of accounting that was not worth it :(
