Yes, internally we have some further not-yet-upstreamed complications
here (mainly, the "memcg=" mount option for all charges on a tmpfs to
be charged to that memcg); but what you're doing here does not obstruct
adding that later, they fit in well with the hierarchy that you (and
Johannes) mapped out above, and it's really an improvement for shmem
not to be referring to current there - thanks.
