[PATCH v3 2/3] mm: drain memcg stocks on css offlining

From: Roman Gushchin
Date: Mon Aug 27 2018 - 12:27:31 EST

Memcg charge is batched using per-cpu stocks, so an offline memcg
can be pinned by a cached charge up to a moment, when a process
belonging to some other cgroup will charge some memory on the same
cpu. In other words, cached charges can prevent a memory cgroup
from being reclaimed for some time, without any clear need.

Let's optimize it by explicit draining of all stocks on css offlining.
As draining is performed asynchronously, and is skipped if any
parallel draining is happening, it's cheap.
