    To be more specific - we want to protect the node with >1 containers from one of
    them growing the dcache infinitely. One of the solutions to this - per container
    dcache limit.

    Yes, this is typical scenario for both OpenVZ and LXC now.

    If by this you mean "account for all the kmem associated with particular superblock" then
    this is OK for us, but this can't be done in a simple

    if (used + size > limit)
    return -ENOMEM
    else {
    used += size;
    return 0;

    manner, since once we hit the limit we should shrink the unused dentries. And most of the
    patches are about this.
