The obj_cgroup_release() and memcg_reparent_objcgs() are serialized by
the css_set_lock. We do not need to care about objcg->memcg being
released in the process of obj_cgroup_release(). So there is no need
to pin memcg before releasing objcg. Remove those pinning logic to
simplfy the code.

There are only two places that modifies the objcg->memcg. One is the
initialization to objcg->memcg in the memcg_online_kmem(), another
is objcgs reparenting in the memcg_reparent_objcgs(). It is also
impossible for the two to run in parallel. So xchg() is unnecessary
and it is enough to use WRITE_ONCE().
