Yesterday, I have noticed that vmcom steadilly grows (it was 7TB before

Rebooted and then watched atop, vmcom constantly grows.
Didn't notice any of running processes to allocate.
Booted in 3.12.8 kernel and everything is back to normal.
Since this is pretty noticable, I guess that this is caused by commit
between rc8 release and now, not sure.
