I found the problem and was able to fix it and created a small patch for
anyone who needs this fixed. A function called prison_memory in
sys/kern/kern_jail.c is called to calculate the memory usage for a given
jail but this value is never stored back to the corresponding prison object
which is used by jtune to check the memory usage. This patch just drops a
few lines in at the end of prison_memory to store this value to the
structure. If anyone knows any adverse side effects this would cause please
let me know.
