memcg: fix ugly initialization of return value is in caller
Remove initialization of vaiable in caller of memory cgroup function. Actually, it's return value of memcg function but it's initialized in caller. Some memory cgroup uses following style to bring the result of start function to the end function for avoiding races. mem_cgroup_start_A(&(*ptr)) /* Something very complicated can happen here. */ mem_cgroup_end_A(*ptr) In some calls, *ptr should be initialized to NULL be caller. But it's ugly. This patch fixes that *ptr is initialized by _start function.
