This looks correct, but I don't think we need to check for reparenting
after all. We have the following unique scenarious:

use_hierarchy=1, memcg=?, reparented=?:
Because use_hierarchy=1 any descendants will have charged the current
memcg, including root, so we can simply uncharge regardless of the memcg
or objcg.

use_hierarchy=0, memcg!=root, reparented=?:
When use_hierarchy=0, objcgs are *only* reparented to root, so if we are
not root the objcg must belong to us.

use_hierarchy=0, memcg=root, reparented=?:
We must have been reparented because root is not initialised with an
objcg, but use_hierarchy=0 so we can not uncharge.

So I believe that the following is sufficient.

if (memcg->use_hierarchy || !mem_cgroup_is_root(memcg))

For the record, I did create the following patch which checks for
reparenting, but it appears to be unecessary.
