Fair enough, I changed it to set the flag at initialization time if
mem_cgroup_disabled(). I was never a fan of the old flags, where it
was never clear what was commandline, and what was internal runtime
state - do_swap_account? really_do_swap_account? But I think it's
straight-forward in this case now.

To me that always seemed like bugs waiting to happen. Like this one!

It's a jump label nowadays, so I've been liberal with these to avoid
subtle bugs.

:-)

But I agree, best to keep this fixup self-contained and defer anything
else to separate cleanup patches.

How about the below? It survives a swaptest with cgroup_disable=memory
for me.

Hugh, I started with your patch, which is why I kept you as the
author, but as the patch now (and arguably the previous one) is
sufficiently different, I dropped that now. I hope that's okay.

Swap accounting used to be implied-disabled when the cgroup controller
was disabled. Restore that for the new cgroup_memory_noswap, so that
we bail out of this function instead of dereferencing a NULL memcg.
