Well, if we're nitpicking ...

Due to the current design of kmemcg, the event allocation is accounted to
the memcg of the process producing the event, even though the misbehaving
process is the listener. The event allocations won't be freed if the
producer exits, only if the listener exits. Nevertheless, it is still
better to account event allocations to the producer's memcg than the
root memcg, because the producer is frequently in the same memcg as
the listener. For example, this is the case with listeners inside
containers that listen to events for files or mounts that are private
to the container.
