Subject: [PATCH -mm 05/14] memcg: add pointer to owner cache to memcg_cache_params

We don't keep a pointer to the owner kmem cache in the
memcg_cache_params struct, because we can always get the cache by
reading the slot corresponding to the owner memcg in the root cache's
memcg_caches array (see memcg_params_to_cache).

However, this means that offline css's, which can be zombieing around
for quite a long time, will occupy slots in memcg_caches arrays, making
them grow larger and larger, which doesn't sound good. Therefore I'm
going to make memcg release the slots on offline, which will render
memcg_params_to_cache invalid. So I'm removing it and adding a back
pointer to memcg_cache_params instead.
