If the 29632k include shared memory regions, then you can
not really count them for each and every smbd. That's the
whole point of sharing, at least in my understanding: Memory
shared between processes should only use pysical resources
once. So saying that every smbd uses 29MB real memory
overstates it a bit I think.
