Subject[patch -mm 0/6] rewrite cgroup aware oom killer for general use
There are three significant concerns about the cgroup aware oom killer as
it is implemented in -mm:

(1) allows users to evade the oom killer by creating subcontainers or
using other controllers since scoring is done per cgroup and not

(2) unfairly compares the root mem cgroup using completely different
criteria than leaf mem cgroups and allows wildly inaccurate results
if oom_score_adj is used, and

(3) does not allow the user to influence the decisionmaking, such that
important subtrees cannot be preferred or biased.

This patchset fixes (1) and (2) completely and, by doing so, introduces a
completely extensible user interface that can be expanded in the future.

Concern (3) could subsequently be addressed either before or after the
cgroup-aware oom killer feature is merged.

It preserves all functionality that currently exists in -mm and extends
it to be generally useful outside of very specialized usecases.

It eliminates the mount option for the cgroup aware oom killer entirely
since it is now enabled through the root mem cgroup's oom policy.
- Rebased to next-20180305
- Fixed issue where total_sock_pages was not being modified
- Changed output of memory.oom_policy to show all available policies
