Subject[PATCH] mm, slab: Extend slab/shrink to shrink all the memcg caches
Date
Currently, a value of '1" is written to /sys/kernel/slab/<slab>/shrink
file to shrink the slab by flushing all the per-cpu slabs and free
slabs in partial lists. This applies only to the root caches, though.

Extends this capability by shrinking all the child memcg caches and
the root cache when a value of '2' is written to the shrink sysfs file.

On a 4-socket 112-core 224-thread x86-64 system after a parallel kernel
build, the the amount of memory occupied by slabs before shrinking
slabs were:

# grep task_struct /proc/slabinfo
task_struct 7114 7296 7744 4 8 : tunables 0 0
0 : slabdata 1824 1824 0
# grep "^S[lRU]" /proc/meminfo
Slab: 1310444 kB
SReclaimable: 377604 kB
SUnreclaim: 932840 kB

After shrinking slabs:

# grep "^S[lRU]" /proc/meminfo
Slab: 695652 kB
SReclaimable: 322796 kB
SUnreclaim: 372856 kB
# grep task_struct /proc/slabinfo
task_struct 2262 2572 7744 4 8 : tunables 0 0
0 : slabdata 643 643 0

Description:
- The shrink file is written when memory should be reclaimed from

+ A value of '1' is written to the shrink file when memory should
+ be reclaimed from a cache. Empty partial slabs are freed and
+ the partial list is sorted so the slabs with the fewest
+ available objects are used first. When a value of '2' is
+ written, all the corresponding child memory cgroup caches
+ should be shrunk as well. All other values are invalid.
