Yeah but this doesn't fit very well to the existing scheme so we would
need two different schemes which is not ideal from maint. point of view.
We also do not have to duplicate all the tricky checks we already do in
oom_evaluate_task. So I would prefer if we could try to hook there and
do the special handling there.

Yeah and I am not sure this is a reasonable behavior. Why should we
consider memcgs which are not kill-all as a single entity?
