Because the number of non-root kmem_caches doesn't depend on the
number of memory cgroups anymore and is generally not very big,
there is no more need for a dedicated workqueue.

Also, as there is no more need to pass any arguments to the
memcg_create_kmem_cache() except the root kmem_cache, it's
possible to just embed the work structure into the kmem_cache
and avoid the dynamic allocation of the work structure.

This will also simplify the synchronization: for each root kmem_cache
there is only one work. So there will be no more concurrent attempts
to create a non-root kmem_cache for a root kmem_cache: the second and
all following attempts to queue the work will fail.

On the kmem_cache destruction path there is no more need to call the
expensive flush_workqueue() and wait for all pending works to be
finished. Instead, cancel_work_sync() can be used to cancel/wait for
only one work.
