Subject: mm: kmem: make memcg_kmem_enabled() irreversible

Historically the kernel memory accounting was an opt-in feature, which
could be enabled for individual cgroups.  But now it's not true, and it's
on by default both on cgroup v1 and cgroup v2.  And as long as a user has
at least one non-root memory cgroup, the kernel memory accounting is on. 
So in most setups it's either always on (if memory cgroups are in use and
kmem accounting is not disabled), either always off (otherwise).

memcg_kmem_enabled() is used in many places to guard the kernel memory
accounting code.  If memcg_kmem_enabled() can reverse from returning true
to returning false (as now), we can't rely on it on release paths and have
to check if it was on before.

If we'll make memcg_kmem_enabled() irreversible (always returning true
after returning it for the first time), it'll make the general logic more
simple and robust.  It also will allow to guard some checks which
otherwise would stay unguarded.
