Documentation/filesystems/proc.txt: add /proc/pid/numa_maps interface explanation snippet



Add a small section to proc.txt doc in order to document its
/proc/pid/numa_maps interface.  It does not introduce any functional
changes, just documentation.

The /proc/pid/numa_maps is an extension based on maps, showing the memory
locality and binding policy, as well as the memory usage (in pages) of
each mapping. The output follows a general format where mapping details get
summarized separated by blank spaces, one mapping per each file line:

Where:
"address" is the starting address for the mapping;
"policy" reports the NUMA memory policy set for the mapping (see vm/numa_memory_policy.txt);
"mapping details" summarizes mapping data such as mapping type, page usage counters,
node locality page counters (N0 == node0, N1 == node1, ...) and the kernel page
size, in KB, that is backing the mapping up.
