I think the overhead of memcg is quite insane as well. And no I cannot
bear that and have it disabled in all my kernels.

NUMA systems having lots of memory is a false argument, that doesn't
mean we can just waste tons of it, people pay good money for that
memory, they want to use it.

I fact, I know that HPC people want things like swap-over-nfs so they
can push infrequently running system crap out into swap so they can get
these few extra megabytes of memory. And you're proposing they give up
~100M just like that?
