IMHO I tend to agree with Roman, it sounds confusing. I'm not sure how
people relies on the counter to have ballpark estimation about the
amount of reclaimable memory for specific memcg, but they are
unreclaimable. And, I don't think they are accounted to
NR_ACTIVE_FILE/NR_INACTIVE_FILE, right? So, the disparity between
NR_FILE_PAGES and NR_{IN}ACTIVE_FILE may be confusing either.
