Well on Android that is kinda true, because Android has it's
oom-killer (way back it was just a shrinker callback, not sure how it
works now), which just shot down all the background apps. So at least
some of that (everything used by background apps) is indeed
reclaimable on Android.

But that doesn't hold on Linux in general, so we can't really do this
for common code.

Also I had a long meeting with Suren, John and other googles
yesterday, and the aim is now to try and support all the Android gpu
memory accounting needs with cgroups. That should work, and it will
allow Android to handle all the Android-ism in a clean way in upstream
code. Or that's at least the plan.

I think the only thing we identified that Android still needs on top
is the dma-buf sysfs stuff, so that shared buffers (which on Android
are always dma-buf, and always stay around as dma-buf fd throughout
their lifetime) can be listed/analyzed with full detail.

But aside from this the plan for all the per-process or per-heap
account, oom-killer integration and everything else is planned to be
done with cgroups. Android (for now) only needs to account overall gpu
memory since none of it is swappable on android drivers anyway, plus
no vram, so not much needed.

Cheers, Daniel
