Subject: [PATCH v6 01/10] mm: add missing smp read barrier on getting memcg kmem_cache pointer

Johannes noticed that reading the memcg kmem_cache pointer in
cache_from_memcg_idx() is performed using READ_ONCE() macro,
which doesn't implement a SMP barrier, which is required
by the logic.

Add a proper smp_rmb() to be paired with smp_wmb() in
memcg_create_kmem_cache().

The same applies to memcg_create_kmem_cache() itself,
which reads the same value without barriers and READ_ONCE().
