I am afraid this output is not really good enough. From MI consumer standpoint, we need a clear
and concise labels for each resource type. Unfortunately, "shm" is not acceptable at all.
"Listing of all shared-memory regions" is unacceptably long. Besides, this would make a good title
for a table with output, but not really good title for a menu used to specify what to show. For
the record, here's the labels I have to use in actual UI code:

	ResourceClassContributionItem_10=Shared memory regions
	ResourceClassContributionItem_14=Message queues
	ResourceClassContributionItem_16=Kernel modules
	ResourceClassContributionItem_2=Process groups

Could GDB be made to output such labels?
