I'm slightly concerned about this part. Do we really need it?
The number of "zombies" which we can pin is limited by the number of CPUs,
and it will drop fast if there is any load on the machine.

If we skip offline memcgs, it can slow down charging/uncharging of skmem,
which might be a problem, if the socket is in active use by an other cgroup.
Honestly, I'd drop this part.

The rest looks good to me.

Thanks!
