Subject: mm: vmscan: memcontrol: remove mem_cgroup_select_victim_node()

Since commit 1ba6fc9af35b ("mm: vmscan: do not share cgroup iteration
between reclaimers"), the memcg reclaim does not bail out earlier based on
sc->nr_reclaimed and will traverse all the nodes.  All the reclaimable
pages of the memcg on all the nodes will be scanned relative to the
reclaim priority.  So, there is no need to maintain state regarding which
node to start the memcg reclaim from.

This patch effectively reverts the commit 889976dbcb12 ("memcg: reclaim
memory from nodes in round-robin order") and commit 453a9bf347f1 ("memcg:
fix numa scan information update to be triggered by memory event").
