[v11 2/6] mm: implement mem_cgroup_scan_tasks() for the root memory cgroup

From: Roman Gushchin
Date: Thu Oct 05 2017 - 09:07:08 EST

Implement mem_cgroup_scan_tasks() functionality for the root
memory cgroup to use this function for looking for a OOM victim
task in the root memory cgroup by the cgroup-ware OOM killer.

The root memory cgroup is treated as a leaf cgroup, so only tasks
which are directly belonging to the root cgroup are iterated over.

This patch doesn't introduce any functional change as
mem_cgroup_scan_tasks() is never called for the root memcg.
This is preparatory work for the cgroup-aware OOM killer,
which will use this function to iterate over tasks belonging
to the root memcg.
