memcg: destroy memcg caches
Implement destruction of memcg caches. Right now, only caches where our reference counter is the last remaining are deleted. If there are any other reference counters around, we just leave the caches lying around until they go away. When that happens, a destruction function is called from the cache code. Caches are only destroyed in process context, so we queue them up for later processing in the general case.
