Subject: [PATCH v3] memcg: schedule high reclaim for remote memcgs on high_work

If a memcg is over high limit, memory reclaim is scheduled to run on
return-to-userland.  However it is assumed that the memcg is the current
process's memcg.  With remote memcg charging for kmem or swapping in a
page charged to remote memcg, current process can trigger reclaim on
remote memcg.  So, schduling reclaim on return-to-userland for remote
memcgs will ignore the high reclaim altogether.  So, record the memcg
needing high reclaim and trigger high reclaim for that memcg on
return-to-userland.  However if the memcg is already recorded for high
reclaim and the recorded memcg is not the descendant of the the memcg
needing high reclaim, punt the high reclaim to the work queue.

Signed-off-by: Shakeel Butt <shakeelb@...gle.com>

Changelog since v2:
- TIF_NOTIFY_RESUME can be set from places other than try_charge() in
  which case current->memcg_high_reclaim will be null. Correctly handle
  such scenarios.

Changelog since v1:
- Punt high reclaim of a memcg to work queue only if the recorded memcg
  is not its descendant.
