It is probably worth noticing that there is a higher chance of missing
threshold events now when we can accumulate huge number of uncharges
during munmaps. I do not think this is earth shattering and the overall
improvement is worth it but changelog should mention it.

I would use list_for_each_entry here which would also save list_empty
check in mem_cgroup_uncharge_list
