Subject[patch -mm v3 1/3] mm, memcg: introduce per-memcg oom policy tunable
The cgroup aware oom killer is needlessly enforced for the entire system
by a mount option. It's unnecessary to force the system into a single
oom policy: either cgroup aware, or the traditional process aware.

This patch introduces a memory.oom_policy tunable for all mem cgroups.
It is currently a no-op: it can only be set to "none", which is its
default policy. It will be expanded in the next patch to define cgroup
aware oom killer behavior for its subtree.

This is an extensible interface that can be used to define cgroup aware
assessment of mem cgroup subtrees or the traditional process aware
assessment.

Another benefit of such an approach is that an admin can lock in a
certain policy for the system or for a mem cgroup subtree and can
delegate the policy decision to the user to determine if the kill should
originate from a subcontainer, as indivisible memory consumers
themselves, or selection should be done per process.
