Subject[PATCH] mm/memcontrol: Add the drop_cache interface for cgroup v2
Date
From: Chunxin Zang <zangchunxin@bytedance.com>

In the cgroup v1, we have 'force_mepty' interface. This is very
useful for userspace to actively release memory. But the cgroup
v2 does not.

This patch reuse cgroup v1's function, but have a new name for
the interface. Because I think 'drop_cache' may be is easier to
understand :)
