I believe this is already in the -mm tree (from the sock memcg fixes)

But actually, my main trouble with this series here, is that I am basing
it on Pekka's tree, while some of the fixes are in -mm already.
If I'd base it on -mm I would lose some of the stuff as well.

Maybe Pekka can merge the current -mm with his tree?

So far I am happy with getting comments from people about the code, so I
did not get overly concerned about that.
