Subject[PATCH 09/11] memcg: propagate kmem limiting information to children
Date
The current memcg slab cache management fails to present satisfatory hierarchical
behavior in the following scenario:

-> /cgroups/memory/A/B/C

* kmem limit set at A
* A and B empty taskwise
* bash in C does find /

Because kmem_accounted is a boolean that was not set for C, no accounting
would be done. This is, however, not what we expect.

The basic idea, is that when a cgroup is limited, we walk the tree
upwards (something Kame and I already thought about doing for other purposes),
and make sure that we store the information about the parent being limited in
kmem_accounted (that is turned into a bitmap: two booleans would not be space
efficient). The code for that is taken from sched/core.c. My reasons for not
putting it into a common place is to dodge the type issues that would arise
from a common implementation between memcg and the scheduler - but I think
that it should ultimately happen, so if you want me to do it now, let me
know.

We do the reverse operation when a formerly limited cgroup becomes unlimited.
