I'm afraid we have to when we want to share 'stock' with cache and
anon pages, which hold individual references. drain_stock() always
assumes one reference per cached page.

Hm, it seemed unnecessary to duplicate the hierarchy check since this
is in the batch-exhausted slowpath anyway.

The problem lies in the memcg association: the random task that gets
interrupted by an arriving packet might not be in the same memcg as
the one owning receiving socket. And multiple interrupts could happen
while we're in the kernel already charging pages. We'd basically have
to maintain a list of memcgs that need to run reclaim_high associated
with current.
