The patch titled
     Subject: mm/memcontrol: fix OOPS inside mem_cgroup_get_nr_swap_pages()
has been removed from the -mm tree.  Its filename was
     mm-memcontrol-fix-oops-inside-mem_cgroup_get_nr_swap_pages.patch

This patch was dropped because it was merged into mainline or a subsystem tree

From: Bhupesh Sharma <bhsharma@redhat.com>
Subject: mm/memcontrol: fix OOPS inside mem_cgroup_get_nr_swap_pages()

Prabhakar reported an OOPS inside mem_cgroup_get_nr_swap_pages() function
in a corner case seen on some arm64 boards when kdump kernel runs with
"cgroup_disable=memory" passed to the kdump kernel via bootargs.

The root-cause behind the same is that currently mem_cgroup_swap_init()
function is implemented as a subsys_initcall() call instead of a
core_initcall(), this means 'cgroup_memory_noswap' still remains set to
the default value (false) even when memcg is disabled via
"cgroup_disable=memory" boot parameter.

This may result in premature OOPS inside mem_cgroup_get_nr_swap_pages()
function in corner cases:
