The pages aren't accounted at the root level, so do not charge the page
to the root memcg in page replacement. Although we do not display the
value (mem_cgroup_usage) so there shouldn't be any actual problem, but
there is a WARN_ON_ONCE in the page_counter_cancel(). Who knows if it
will trigger? So it is better to fix it.
