At LSF we have discussed that we should keep a list of over-(soft)limit
cgroups in a list which would be the first target for reclaiming (in
round-robin fashion). If we are note able to reclaim enough from those
(the list becomes empty) we should fallback to the all groups reclaim
(what you did in this patchset).
