I understood why vmstat with rumphijack doesn't work.  Because
vmstat has the sgid bit and it prevents rumphijack, i.e.,
LD_PRELOAD from working.  (Thanks hikaru@ for the suggestion!)

A workaround for the issue is:
  cp /usr/bin/vmstat ./vmstat
  $HIJACKING ./vmstat
  rm -f ./vmstat

It's awkward but it's reasonable for now.  A proper fix would
be to stop using kvm(3) for vmstat and drop the sgid bit from
the binary.

I guess on most anita environments leak checks pass just in luck
because the environment normally doesn't communicate with outside
and there are no L2 caches.  OTOH on baremetal environments there
can be active L2 caches, which makes the leak checks fail.
