tot_memkb is only set when it was specified in the config file, and
perhaps later when a suitable xl mem-FOO command and a related watch on
the targer-tot_pages node is added.

So far PoD and paging are unrelated and mean different things.
I think the difference between max_memkb and tot_memkb could be the
trigger to start paging.

Yes, sorry, docu is lacking in that change.
