mm: count swap usage

A frequent questions from users about memory management is what numbers of
swap ents are user for processes.  And this information will give some
hints to oom-killer.

Besides we can count the number of swapents per a process by scanning
/proc/<pid>/smaps, this is very slow and not good for usual process
information handler which works like 'ps' or 'top'.  (ps or top is now
enough slow..)

This patch adds a counter of swapents to mm_counter and update is at each
swap events.  Information is exported via /proc/<pid>/status file as
