The log Qian Cai posted at [1] and partially cited below confirms that the
failure happens when *user* PGDs are allocated and the addition of
__GFP_ACCOUNT to gfp flags used by pgd_alloc() only uncovered another
issue.

I'm still failing to reproduce it with qemu and I'm not really familiar
with slub/memcg code to say anything smart about it. Will keep looking.

Note, that as failures start way after efi_virtmap_init() that allocates a
PGD for efi_mm, there are no real fixes required for the original series,
except that the check for mm == &init_mm I copied for some reason from
powerpc is bogus and can be removed.

I surely can add pgd_alloc_kernel() to be used by the EFI code to make sure
we won't run into issues with memcg in the future.
