Sure, here we are.

Subject: [PATCH] mm: memcg: link page counters to root if use_hierarchy is false

Richard reported a warning which can be reproduced by running the LTP
madvise6 test (cgroup v1 in the non-hierarchical mode should be used):

The problem occurs because in the non-hierarchical mode non-root page
counters are not linked to root page counters, so the charge is not
propagated to the root memory cgroup.

After the removal of the original memory cgroup and reparenting of the
object cgroup, the root cgroup might be uncharged by draining a objcg
stock, for example. It leads to an eventual underflow of the charge
and triggers a warning.

Fix it by linking all page counters to corresponding root page
counters in the non-hierarchical mode.

The patch doesn't affect how the hierarchical mode is working,
which is the only sane and truly supported mode now.

Thanks to Richard for reporting, debugging and providing an
alternative version of the fix!
