The diagram below shows how to make the page lruvec lock safe when the
LRU pages reparented.

lock_page_lruvec(page)
    retry:
        lruvec = mem_cgroup_page_lruvec(page);

        // The page is reparented at this time.
        spin_lock(&lruvec->lru_lock);

        if (unlikely(lruvec_memcg(lruvec) != page_memcg(page)))
            // Acquired the wrong lruvec lock and need to retry.
            // Because this page is on the parent memcg lruvec list.
            goto retry;

        // If we reach here, it means that page_memcg(page) is stable.

memcg_reparent_objcgs(memcg)
    // lruvec belongs to memcg and lruvec_parent belongs to parent memcg.
    spin_lock(&lruvec->lru_lock);
    spin_lock(&lruvec_parent->lru_lock);

    // Move all the pages from the lruvec list to the parent lruvec list.

    spin_unlock(&lruvec_parent->lru_lock);
    spin_unlock(&lruvec->lru_lock);

After we acquire the lruvec lock, we need to check whether the page is
reparented. If so, we need to reacquire the new lruvec lock. On the
routine of the LRU pages reparenting, we will also acquire the lruvec
lock (Will be implemented in the later patch). So page_memcg() cannot
be changed when we hold the lruvec lock.

Since lruvec_memcg(lruvec) is always equal to page_memcg(page) after
we hold the lruvec lock, lruvec_memcg_debug() check is pointless. So
remove it.

This is a preparation for reparenting the LRU pages.
