The commit 3e32cb2e0a12 ("mm: memcontrol: lockless page counters") could
had memcg->memsw->failcnt been accessed concurrently as reported by
KCSAN,

BUG: KCSAN: data-race in page_counter_try_charge / page_counter_try_charge

write to 0xffff88809bbf2158 of 8 bytes by task 11782 on cpu 0:
 page_counter_try_charge+0x100/0x170 mm/page_counter.c:129
 try_charge+0x185/0xbf0 mm/memcontrol.c:2405
 __memcg_kmem_charge_memcg+0x4a/0xe0 mm/memcontrol.c:2837
 __memcg_kmem_charge+0xcf/0x1b0 mm/memcontrol.c:2877
 __alloc_pages_nodemask+0x26c/0x310 mm/page_alloc.c:4780

read to 0xffff88809bbf2158 of 8 bytes by task 11814 on cpu 1:
 page_counter_try_charge+0xef/0x170 mm/page_counter.c:129
 try_charge+0x185/0xbf0 mm/memcontrol.c:2405
 __memcg_kmem_charge_memcg+0x4a/0xe0 mm/memcontrol.c:2837
 __memcg_kmem_charge+0xcf/0x1b0 mm/memcontrol.c:2877
 __alloc_pages_nodemask+0x26c/0x310 mm/page_alloc.c:4780

Since the "failcnt" counter is tolerant of some degree of inaccuracy and
is only used to report stats, a data race will not be harmful, thus mark
it as an intentional data races with the data_race() macro.
