I think making lru_lock per-memcg helps in colocated environment: some
workloads are of high priority while some workloads are of low priority.

For these low priority workloads, we may even want to use some swap for
it to save memory and this can cause frequent alloc/reclaim, depending
on its workingset etc. and these alloc/reclaim need to hold the global
lru lock and zone lock. And then when the high priority workloads do
page fault, their performance can be adversely affected and that is not
acceptible since these high priority workloads normally have strict SLA
