My advice on this, is don't worry about it! Let the operating system take care of it! The memory that you are using will get swapped to disc if the operating system needs more, and the memory that you have asked for is not being actively used.

Sharing memory with the system?.....That has potential for all sorts of problems, unless your programming is 100% perfect......but as you seem to be really keen on this, the easiest way is possibly through 'modules'? Have a look here for a kernel programming:

and choose your kernel version:)
