Subject: [PATCH v2 1/2] mm/memcg: try harder to decrease [memory,memsw].limit_in_bytes

mem_cgroup_resize_[memsw]_limit() tries to free only 32 (SWAP_CLUSTER_MAX)
pages on each iteration. This makes practically impossible to decrease
limit of memory cgroup. Tasks could easily allocate back 32 pages,
so we can't reduce memory usage, and once retry_count reaches zero we return
-EBUSY.

Easy to reproduce the problem by running the following commands:

  mkdir /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/test
  echo $$ >> /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/test/tasks
  cat big_file > /dev/null &
  sleep 1 && echo $((100*1024*1024)) > /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/test/memory.limit_in_bytes
  -bash: echo: write error: Device or resource busy

Instead of relying on retry_count, keep trying to free required amount of pages
until reclaimer makes any progress.
