[PATCH] Perf: add anonymous huge page recognition

From: Joshua Zhu
Date: Sat Jan 05 2013 - 00:30:10 EST

Judging anonymous memory's vm_area_struct,
perf_mmap_event's filename will be set to
"//anon" indicating this vma is belong to
anonymous memory.
Once hugepage is used, vma's vm_file points
to hugetlbfs. In this way, this vma will not
be regarded as anonymous memory by is_anon_memory()
in perf user space utility.
