Memory controller implements the memory.low best-effort memory
protection mechanism, which works perfectly in many cases and
allows protecting working sets of important workloads from
sudden reclaim.

But its semantics has a significant limitation: it works
only as long as there is a supply of reclaimable memory.
This makes it pretty useless against any sort of slow memory
leaks or memory usage increases. This is especially true
for swapless systems. If swap is enabled, memory soft protection
effectively postpones problems, allowing a leaking application
to fill all swap area, which makes no sense.
The only effective way to guarantee the memory protection
in this case is to invoke the OOM killer.

It's possible to handle this case in userspace by reacting
on MEMCG_LOW events; but there is still a place for a fail-safe
in-kernel mechanism to provide stronger guarantees.

This patch introduces the memory.min interface for cgroup v2
memory controller. It works very similarly to memory.low
(sharing the same hierarchical behavior), except that it's
not disabled if there is no more reclaimable memory in the system.
