Memory usage when opening Linux Kernel in KDevelop

Buckets are the memory-units that are used to store the data in
ItemRepository (monster-buckets are only needed in special cases).

What you've found out is that 30% of the memory usage come from the
duchain global repository storage, which is not surprising. If you
want to bring that information to a useful level (from where you can
improve the situation), you should check _which_ repository is taking
up so much memory, maybe there's some more possibilities to reduce the
amount of stored information in the SimplifiedParsing mode, which
should be used for the linux kernel.

Anyway, the linux kernel is HUGE, so I don't see an immediate need for
action here.

Greetings, David
