Slabs are effectively reparented too (what's most important, their
references), but I agree, "slab caches" suits better here.

How about this?
There is a bonus: currently we release all memcg kmem_caches all together
with the memory cgroup itself. This patchset allows individual kmem_caches
to be released as soon as they become inactive and free.
Sorry, my bad, I was focused on patches, and didn't give enough attention
to the cover letter. I hope to get some feedback from Vladimir, and then
post a next version with these issues fixed.
Thank you for looking into it!
