    For what it worth, I agree here. Even if we decide to make another
    interface to vmpressure (which, say, would not require memcg), then it is
    better to keep the API the same: eventfd + control file. That way,
    API/ABI-wise there will be no differnce between memcg and non-memcg
    kernels, which is cool.
