Thanks!

I'm not against this approach, and maybe it can lead to a better code,
but the version you sent is just not there yet.

There are some problems with it:

1) If there are nested cgroups with oom_group set, you will calculate
a badness multiple times, and rely on the fact, that top memcg will
become the largest score. It can be optimized, of course, but it's
additional code.

2) cgroup_has_tasks() probably requires additional locking.
Maybe it's ok to read nr_populated_csets without explicit locking,
but it's not obvious for me.

3) Returning -1 from memcg_oom_badness() if eligible is equal to 0
is suspicious.

Right now your version has exactly the same amount of code
(skipping comments). I assume, this approach just requires some additional
thinking/rework.

Anyway, thank you for sharing this!
