Seems we are going to accept this feature. Is it because kmemcg won't be able
to fullfill this requirement? And that's because kmemcg can only and will only
be able to control global kernel memory usage?

I thought there will be some control file like kmem.pids.max, which will
translate the number of processes to the kernel memory needed, and fail memory
allocation if we reach the limit, for example make task_struct slab return
NULL.
