That commit did not introduce the function though, no? It was
introduced before it and replaced by other variants over time (like
mem_cgroup_from_slab_obj()). It looks like that commit was reverted ~9
months ago. We can always bring it back if/when needed.

It also looks to me that 1d0403d20f6c was using mem_cgroup_from_obj()
on a struct net object, which is allocated in net_alloc() from a slab
cache, so mem_cgroup_from_slab_obj() should be sufficient, no?
