Thanks Hugh. I can see what is the problem now. I was looking at the
Linus' tree and we have a different code there

	long nr_swap_pages = get_nr_swap_pages();

        if (!do_swap_account || !cgroup_subsys_on_dfl(memory_cgrp_subsys))
                return nr_swap_pages;

which would be impossible to crash so I was really wondering what is
going on here. But there are other changes in the mmotm which I haven't
reviewed yet. Looking at the next tree now it is a fallout from "mm:
memcontrol: prepare swap controller setup for integration".

!memcg check slightly more cryptic than an explicit mem_cgroup_disabled
but I would just leave it to Johannes as well.
