Due to the current design of kmemcg, the memcg of the process who does the
allocation gets the accounting, so event allocations get accounted for
the memcg of
the event producer process, even though the misbehaving process is the listener.
The event allocations won't be freed if the producer exits, only if
the listener exists.
Nevertheless, it is still better to account event allocations to memcg
of producer
process and not to root memcg, because heuristically producer is many
time in the
same memcg as the listener. For example, this is the case with listeners inside
containers that listen on events for files or mounts that are private
to the container.
<\suggest rephrase>

And the same comment should be above creation of event kmem caches,
so we know this is the lesser evil and not the perfect solution.
