// To start listening, create a new instance, passing a callback to a
// function that takes a MemoryPressureLevel parameter. To stop listening,
// simply delete the listener object. The implementation guarantees
// that the callback will always be called on the thread that created
// the listener.
// Note that even on the same thread, the callback is not guaranteed to be
// called synchronously within the system memory pressure broadcast.
// Please see notes in MemoryPressureLevel enum below: some levels are
// absolutely critical, and if not enough memory is returned to the system,
// it'll potentially kill the app, and then later the app will have to be
// cold-started.
// Example:
// void OnMemoryPressure(MemoryPressureLevel memory_pressure_level) {
// ...
// }
// // Start listening.
// MemoryPressureListener* my_listener =
// new MemoryPressureListener(base::Bind(&OnMemoryPressure));
// ...
// // Stop listening.
// delete my_listener;

// At this level, modules are advised to free all possible memory. The
