These are list of ebtables rules, which may be displayed with $ebtables-save command.
In case of we do not account them, a low priority container may eat all the memory
and OOM killer in berserk mode will kill all the processes on machine. They are not bound
to any process, but they are bound to network namespace.

OOM killer does not analyze such the memory cgroup-related allocations, since it
is task-aware only. Maybe we should do it namespace-aware too...
