Subject: mm: memcg/slab: fix use after free in obj_cgroup_charge

The rcu_read_lock/unlock only can guarantee that the memcg will not be
freed, but it cannot guarantee the success of css_get to memcg.

If the whole process of a cgroup offlining is completed between reading a
objcg->memcg pointer and bumping the css reference on another CPU, and
there are exactly 0 external references to this memory cgroup (how we get
to the obj_cgroup_charge() then?), css_get() can change the ref counter
from 0 back to 1.
