Subject[PATCH 2/4] memcg: enable accounting for kernfs nodes and iattrs
kernfs nodes are quite small kernel objects, however there are few
scenarios where it consumes significant piece of all allocated memory:

1) creating a new netdevice allocates ~50Kb of memory, where ~10Kb
was allocated for 80+ kernfs nodes.

2) cgroupv2 mkdir allocates ~60Kb of memory, ~10Kb of them are kernfs
structures.

3) Shakeel Butt reports that Google has workloads which create 100s
of subcontainers and they have observed high system overhead
without memcg accounting of kernfs.

It makes sense to enable accounting for kernfs objects, otherwise its
misuse inside memcg-limited can lead to global memory shortage,
OOM and random kills of host processes.
