There are extra tags describing cached and buffered memory.

7> memsup:get_system_memory_data().
[{system_total_memory,8322506752},
  {free_swap,7939817472},
  {total_swap,7999582208},
  {cached_memory,3634323456},
  {buffered_memory,521039872},
  {free_memory,990232576},
  {total_memory,8322506752}]

we cannot change the meaning of free_memory tag.
