mm: allocate kernel pages to the right memcg
When a process tries to allocate a page with the __GFP_KMEMCG flag, the page allocator will call the corresponding memcg functions to validate the allocation. Tasks in the root memcg can always proceed. To avoid adding markers to the page - and a kmem flag that would necessarily follow, as much as doing page_cgroup lookups for no reason, whoever is marking its allocations with __GFP_KMEMCG flag is responsible for telling the page allocator that this is such an allocation at free_pages() time. This is done by the invocation of __free_accounted_pages() and free_accounted_pages().
