Yeah, that stat item doesn't make much sense in cgroup1. Cgroup2
doesn't export it at all right now. Should we export it in the future,
we can add special MEMCG1_PGPGIN_SILLY events and let cgroup2 use the
real thing. Or remove/fix the stats in cgroup1, because I cannot think
how this would be useful at all right now, anyway.

But it's ooold behavior, so no urgency to tackle this right now.
