This was using the current net-next tree.
Used recipe was something like:

Make sure cgroup2 is mounted or mount it by mount -t cgroup2 none $MOUNT_POINT.
Enable memory controller by echo +memory > $MOUNT_POINT/cgroup.subtree_control.
Create a cgroup by mkdir $MOUNT_POINT/job.
Jump into that cgroup by echo $$ > $MOUNT_POINT/job/cgroup.procs.

<Launch tests>

The regression was smaller than 1%, so considered noise compared to
the benefits of the bug fix.
