[c-nsp] c6500 process memory

I assume it's a sup720, there's nothing you can do. Make sure you stay 
on the old code train SXI or SXJ and that's about it.

Eventually it will run out of ram before it runs out of tcam space (bad 
design on their part i guess)

Cisco could work around this by implementing compression or offloading 
some more processes to the SP but I doubt they have interest in reviving 
the old platform.

70% is nothing really, I wouldn't worry about it until it's over 95%
