Get number of dirty pages of memory-mapped file via syscall


Hello,
I have a memory-mapped file and I'd like to know the number of unsynced (dirty) pages. Is there any system call to find this out or do I have to open and read /proc/pid/smaps?

Thanks!

You can't reliably obtain that information because "any attempt to do so will change the experiment."
