Subject[RFC 4/4] mm, memcg: expedite OOM if no memcg is reclaimable
Date
Let shrink_zone us know that at least one group has been eligible so
that the caller knows that further attempts to reclaim will not help.

All the shrink_zone callers should back off in such a case. Direct
reclaim should hand over to OOM as soon as possible, kswapd should not
raise the priority and prefferably go to sleep, and the zone reclaim
should just give up without re-trying with higher priority.
