Note that some other kernel objects that don't have any other tight
limit are already charged too (but their charging likely did not stand
out in any performance regression tests).
In the situation you describe, users can already pass
`cgroup.memory=nokmem` and get rid of charging overhead in general.

IOW, if flock objects are charged, there already is a boot option to
turn off such behavior.
