-The struct taskstats
---------------------
-
-This document contains an explanation of the struct taskstats fields.
-
-There are three different groups of fields in the struct taskstats:
-
-1) Common and basic accounting fields
- If CONFIG_TASKSTATS is set, the taskstats interface is enabled and
- the common fields and basic accounting fields are collected for
- delivery at do_exit() of a task.
-2) Delay accounting fields
- These fields are placed between
- /* Delay accounting fields start */
- and
- /* Delay accounting fields end */
- Their values are collected if CONFIG_TASK_DELAY_ACCT is set.
-3) Extended accounting fields
- These fields are placed between
- /* Extended accounting fields start */
- and
- /* Extended accounting fields end */
- Their values are collected if CONFIG_TASK_XACCT is set.
-
-4) Per-task and per-thread context switch count statistics
-
-5) Time accounting for SMT machines
-
-6) Extended delay accounting fields for memory reclaim
-
-Future extension should add fields to the end of the taskstats struct, and
-should not change the relative position of each field within the struct.

-struct taskstats {

-1) Common and basic accounting fields:
- /* The version number of this struct. This field is always set to

-2) Delay accounting fields:

- * few fields are not delays
- *
