Extremely flexible load logger

'sample_load' is an extremely flexible load logger. It sets when and how samples of the load are logged as well as the output format. It can also log the memory-in-use (physical/swap). It uses a buffer (of configurable size) to temporarily store samples, which minimizes the overhead of writing to a file. It can also log the process (PID, cmdline, CPU usage percentage) which has used the most CPU time in the last interval.
