It is just that I don't want to change the existing behavior of the
current code. It will definitely take longer to shrink both the root
cache and the memcg caches. If we all agree that the only sensible
operation is to shrink root cache and the memcg caches together. I am
fine just adding memcg shrink without changing the sysfs interface
definition and be done with it.
