AKA, "mode switch", a switch from "primary mode" to "secondary mode", or 
vice versa.

One place you can find that information is in:


there are two fields MSW, and CSW which count mode/context switches 
per-process. This requires an open, a read loop to locate the desired 
pid and extract the desired information, then either rewind or 
close/reopen to do it again - all of which will almost surely generate 
more mode/context switching.
