:> >>>>>#define VM_METER VM_TOTAL

    This change was part of a larger patch set.  I have no particular 
    objection to adding the #define or renaming VM_TOTAL back to VM_METER,
    but I *WILL* point out that even without a name change the VM cnt 
    structure has changed so often that for all intents and purposes the
    API has changed with or without the name change, on many occassions,
    and is likely to continue to change in the future.  

    Because of this there isn't much point keeping name compatibility and
    unless you can point to some piece of third party software that
    is so adversely effected that the name must be changed back, I would
    not recommend changing it back.  But if you want to do it, I will not
    stop you.
