commit 121dffe20b141c9b27f39d49b15882469cbebae7 upstream.

When I use kfree_rcu() to free a large memory allocated by kmalloc_node(),
the following dump occurs.

BUG: kernel NULL pointer dereference, address: 0000000000000020

When kmalloc_node() a large memory, page is allocated, not slab, so when
freeing memory via kfree_rcu(), this large memory should not be used by
memcg_slab_free_hook(), because memcg_slab_free_hook() is is used for

Using page_objcgs_check() instead of page_objcgs() in
memcg_slab_free_hook() to fix this bug.
