Subject[PATCH 4.9 22/91] memcg: account security cred as well to kmemcg
Date
From: Shakeel Butt <shakeelb@google.com>

commit 84029fd04c201a4c7e0b07ba262664900f47c6f5 upstream.

The cred_jar kmem_cache is already memcg accounted in the current kernel
but cred->security is not. Account cred->security to kmemcg.

Recently we saw high root slab usage on our production and on further
inspection, we found a buggy application leaking processes. Though that
buggy application was contained within its memcg but we observe much
more system memory overhead, couple of GiBs, during that period. This
overhead can adversely impact the isolation on the system.

One source of high overhead we found was cred->security objects, which
have a lifetime of at least the life of the process which allocated
them.
