Well, with the current implementation there are three limits an
administrator can use to control secretmem limits: mlock, memcg and
kernel parameter.

The kernel parameter puts a global upper limit for secretmem usage,
memcg accounts all secretmem allocations, including the unused memory in
large pages caching and mlock allows per task limit for secretmem
mappings, well, like mlock does.

I didn't consider a dedicated cgroup, as it seems we already have enough
existing knobs and a new one would be unnecessary.
