This version is rebased on v5.18.

Since the following patchsets applied. All the kernel memory are charged
with the new APIs of obj_cgroup.

	[v17,00/19] The new cgroup slab memory controller [1]
	[v5,0/7] Use obj_cgroup APIs to charge kmem pages [2]

But user memory allocations (LRU pages) pinning memcgs for a long time -
it exists at a larger scale and is causing recurring problems in the real
world: page cache doesn't get reclaimed for a long time, or is used by the
second, third, fourth, ... instance of the same job that was restarted into
a new cgroup every time. Unreclaimable dying cgroups pile up, waste memory,
and make page reclaim very inefficient.

We can convert LRU pages and most other raw memcg pins to the objcg direction
to fix this problem, and then the LRU pages will not pin the memcgs.

This patchset aims to make the LRU pages to drop the reference to memory
cgroup by using the APIs of obj_cgroup. Finally, we can see that the number
of the dying cgroups will not increase if we run the following test script.


dd if=/dev/zero of=temp bs=4096 count=1
cat /proc/cgroups | grep memory

for i in {0..2000}
	mkdir /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/test$i
	echo $$ > /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/test$i/cgroup.procs
	cat temp >> log
	echo $$ > /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/cgroup.procs
	rmdir /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/test$i

cat /proc/cgroups | grep memory

rm -f temp log

 - Resend and rebased on v5.18.

 - Removed the Acked-by tags from Roman since this version is based on
   the folio relevant.

 - Rename obj_cgroup_release_kmem() to obj_cgroup_release_bytes() and the
   dependencies of CONFIG_MEMCG_KMEM (suggested by Roman, Thanks).
 - Rebase to linux 5.15-rc1.
 - Add a new pacth to cleanup mem_cgroup_kmem_disabled().

 - Drop RFC tag.
 - Rebase to linux next-20210811.

RFC v4:
 - Collect Acked-by from Roman.
 - Rebase to linux next-20210525.
 - Rename obj_cgroup_release_uncharge() to obj_cgroup_release_kmem().
 - Change the patch 1 title to "prepare objcg API for non-kmem usage".
 - Convert reparent_ops_head to an array in patch 8.

Thanks for Roman's review and suggestions.

RFC v3:
 - Drop the code cleanup and simplification patches. Gather those patches
   into a separate series[1].
 - Rework patch #1 suggested by Johannes.

RFC v2:
 - Collect Acked-by tags by Johannes. Thanks.
 - Rework lruvec_holds_page_lru_lock() suggested by Johannes. Thanks.
 - Fix move_pages_to_lru().
