Agreed. This is really what I was hoping for in the first place, but
didn't know before submitting the initial patch whether there was some
arcane reason for the arm-specific show_mem.
If someone like Yalin really wants the total slab pages, they can just
add slab_unreclaimable and slab_reclaimable (btw, Yalin, all emails
I've sent to you are bouncing, maybe you'll see this since it's going
to the list).
