read_memory function needs 3.0 support

smolt's function for reading the system memory size is hardcoded such that it works only with kernels versioned 2.4 and 2.6.

The active Fedora bug report for this is https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=722859 ; a patch to fix it was added to the Fedora package but should obviously be added to smolt itself.

IMHO the patch in the dupe bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=733739 is somewhat more elegant than the one in 722859.

This causes smolt to crash whenever the system is running a 3.x kernel.
