/usr/bin/top: RES and MEM% are 16 times VIRT

The RES column displayed by /usr/bin/top is 16 times as large as VIRT
(as is MEM%, since it is presumably calculated from RES).  From my
observations, VIRT seems to agree with /proc/self/stat field 22
(0-origin), and matches what I expect.

Not a big deal, but it surprised the heck out of me....

If I were to guess, I'd say this is probably due to incorrect page
size/count calculations.
