The switch can happen only when singular (i.e. root-only) hierarchy
exists. (Or it could if rebind_subsystems() waited until all memcgs are
completely free'd.)

So with the single memcg, it may be possible to reconstruct the
necessary counters in both directions using the statistics (or some
complementarity, without fine grained counters removal).

I didn't check all the charging/uncharging places, these are just my 2
