If the system has little free memory, we can know where the memory is via
/proc/meminfo. If a lot of memory is consumed by socket buffer, we cannot
know it when the Sock is not shown in the /proc/meminfo. If the unaware user
can't think of the socket buffer, naturally they will not `ss -m`. The
end result
is that we still don’t know where the memory is consumed. And we add the
Sock to the /proc/meminfo just like the memcg does('sock' item in the cgroup
v2 memory.stat). So I think that adding to /proc/meminfo is sufficient.

Yeah, we call inc_sock_node_page_state() in the skb_page_frag_refill().
So if someone gets the page returned by skb_page_frag_refill(), it must
put the page via __skb_frag_unref()/skb_frag_unref(). We use PG_private
to indicate that we need to dec the node page state when the refcount of
page reaches zero.
