memcg: decrement static keys at real destroy time
We call the destroy function when a cgroup starts to be removed, such as by a rmdir event. However, because of our reference counters, some objects are still inflight. Right now, we are decrementing the static_keys at destroy() time, meaning that if we get rid of the last static_key reference, some objects will still have charges, but the code to properly uncharge them won't be run. This becomes a problem specially if it is ever enabled again, because now new charges will be added to the staled charges making keeping it pretty much impossible. We just need to be careful with the static branch activation: since there is no particular preferred order of their activation, we need to make sure that we only start using it after all call sites are active. This is achieved by having a per-memcg flag that is only updated after static_key_slow_inc() returns. At this time, we are sure all sites are active. This is made per-memcg, not global, for a reason: it also has the effect of making socket accounting more consistent. The first memcg to be limited will trigger static_key() activation, therefore, accounting. But all the others will then be accounted no matter what. After this patch, only limited memcgs will have its sockets accounted.
