Subject[PATCH 10/11] memcg: allow a memcg with kmem charges to be destructed.
Date
Because the ultimate goal of the kmem tracking in memcg is to
track slab pages as well, we can't guarantee that we'll always
be able to point a page to a particular process, and migrate
the charges along with it - since in the common case, a page
will contain data belonging to multiple processes.

Because of that, when we destroy a memcg, we only make sure
the destruction will succeed by discounting the kmem charges
from the user charges when we try to empty the cgroup.
