[aviksil Jul 27, 2011]: Got stuck due to pandaboard issue: my board is not booting, seems like SD connector problem
[rsalveti Jul 28, 2011]: Good progress but not yet done, moving to 11.08
[rsalveti, Aug 22, 2011]: Setting callgrind related WI to postpone as this is not necessary to complete this blueprint, we can match the goal with xrestop and xmemcap.
[rsalveti, Aug 31, 2011] Tests: and . May need additional changes later when it's properly used, but initial test is validated with Lava.

Headline: Continuous memory footprint measurement and report is now available at LAVA, exporting the results against the daily/weekly images
Acceptance: Memory footprint tool is identified and integrated at LAVA, exporting the results at the dashboard against the supported images.
