I believe, it's a solvable problem: we can require CAP_SYS_RESOURCE to set
the oom_priority below parent's value, or something like this.

But it looks more complex, and I'm not sure there are real examples,
when we have to compare memcgs, which are on different levels
(or in different subtrees).

In any case, oom_priorities and size-based comparison should share the
same tree-walking policy. And I still would prefer comparing sizes and
priorities independently on each level.

Thanks!
