[PATCH 5.15 875/913] mm/memcontrol: return 1 from cgroup.memory __setup() handler

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

commit 460a79e18842caca6fa0c415de4a3ac1e671ac50 upstream.

__setup() handlers should return 1 if the command line option is handled
and 0 if not (or maybe never return 0; it just pollutes init's

The only reason that this particular __setup handler does not pollute
init's environment is that the setup string contains a '.', as in
"cgroup.memory". This causes init/main.c::unknown_boottoption() to
consider it to be an "Unused module parameter" and ignore it. (This is
for parsing of loadable module parameters any time after kernel init.)
Otherwise the string "cgroup.memory=whatever" would be added to init's
environment strings.

Instead of relying on this '.' quirk, just return 1 to indicate that the
boot option has been handled.

Note that there is no warning message if someone enters:
