> This commit makes several important changes in the lifecycle
> of a non-root kmem_cache, which also affect the lifecycle
> of a memory cgroup.
>
> Currently each charged slab page has a page->mem_cgroup pointer
> to the memory cgroup and holds a reference to it.
> Kmem_caches are held by the memcg and are released with it.
> It means that none of kmem_caches are released unless at least one
> reference to the memcg exists, which is not optimal.
>
> So the current scheme can be illustrated as:
> page->mem_cgroup->kmem_cache.
>
> To implement the slab memory reparenting we need to invert the scheme
> into: page->kmem_cache->mem_cgroup.
>
> Let's make every page to hold a reference to the kmem_cache (we
> already have a stable pointer), and make kmem_caches to hold a single
> reference to the memory cgroup.
>
> To make this possible we need to introduce a new percpu refcounter
> for non-root kmem_caches. The counter is initialized to the percpu
> mode, and is switched to atomic mode after deactivation, so we never
> shutdown an active cache. The counter is bumped for every charged page
> and also for every running allocation. So the kmem_cache can't
> be released unless all allocations complete.
>
> To shutdown non-active empty kmem_caches, let's reuse the
> infrastructure of the RCU-delayed work queue, used previously for
> the deactivation. After the generalization, it's perfectly suited
> for our needs.
>
> Since now we can release a kmem_cache at any moment after the
> deactivation, let's call sysfs_slab_remove() only from the shutdown
> path. It makes deactivation path simpler.
>
> Because we don't set the page->mem_cgroup pointer, we need to change
> the way how memcg-level stats is working for slab pages. We can't use
> mod_lruvec_page_state() helpers anymore, so switch over to
> mod_lruvec_state().
