Subject[PATCH] memcg: Ignore unprotected parent in mem_cgroup_protected()
Date
Currently memory.min|low implementation requires the whole
hierarchy has the settings, otherwise the protection will
be broken.

Our hierarchy is kind of like(memory.min value in brackets),

root
|
docker(0)
/ \
c1(max) c2(0)

Note that "docker" doesn't set memory.min. When kswapd runs,
mem_cgroup_protected() returns "0" emin for "c1" due to "0"
@parent_emin of "docker", as a result "c1" gets reclaimed.

But it's hard to maintain parent's "memory.min" when there're
uncertain protected children because only some important types
of containers need the protection. Further, control tasks
belonging to parent constantly reproduce trivial memory which
should not be protected at all. It makes sense to ignore
unprotected parent in this scenario to achieve the flexibility.

In order not to break previous hierarchical behaviour, only
ignore the parent when there's no protected ancestor upwards
the hierarchy.
