/proc/meminfo changed: commercial programs no longer work

Hi all,

I'm using a few commercial programs on Linux 2.1.42.
But since the /proc changes somewhere in 2.1.40, the programs can no longer
detect the right amount of free memory. (yes, they scanf /proc/meminfo)

Would it be possible to include a compile option

Version 2.0 /proc/meminfo

or something else to be backward compatible ?
