Lol, I had to double check my trees to see what's going on as I don't
remember this being part of the patch. But it looks like the double
free came from the "net: drop tcp_memcontrol.c" patch and I must have
removed it again during conflict resolution when rebasing this patch
on top of yours. I must have thought git's auto-merge added it.

However, this causes an underflow of the kmem static branch, so we
will have to fix this directly in "net: drop tcp_memcontrol.c".

Andrew, could you please pick this up? However, it's important to also
then remove the hunk above from THIS patch, the one that deletes the
excessive memcg_free_kmem(). We need exactly one memcg_free_kmem() in
mem_cgroup_css_free(). :-)
