I think you should take a deep breath and write patech relaxedly, and do enough test.

This should be

	return !!*prot->memory_pressure;

BTW, I don't like to receive tons of everyday-update even if you're in hurry.

I wonder I should say NO, here. (Networking guys are ok ??)

IIUC, this means there is no way to see aggregated sockstat of all system.
And the result depends on the cgroup which the caller is under control.

I think you should show aggregated sockstat(global + per-memcg) here and 
show per-memcg ones via /cgroup interface or add private_sockstat to show
per cgroup summary.
