The current documentation of these fields is ambiguous. In future
versions, it will read:

- [minor_words] Number of words allocated in the minor heap since
             the program was started.
- [major_words] Number of words allocated in the major heap, including
             the promoted words, since the program was started.

I hope this is clearer.
