Subject[PATCH] fs, mm: account filp and names caches to kmemcg
Date
The allocations from filp and names kmem caches can be directly
triggered by user space applications. A buggy application can
consume a significant amount of unaccounted system memory. Though
we have not noticed such buggy applications in our production
but upon close inspection, we found that a lot of machines spend
very significant amount of memory on these caches. So, these
caches should be accounted to kmemcg.
