I just added few fields int the structure vm_object, added some code to vm_page.c
Added couple of functions to the vm_map.h and vm_map.c
Just to display proportional rss with the rss.
Also, added a field in struct kern_info and make changes to m_dragonfly.c
I checked any error in the code with lint and gcc on all the files i made
changes to.
But, as they are dependent on each other needed to compile for consistency.
