memcg: fix deadlock between lock_page_cgroup and mapping tree_lock
mapping->tree_lock can be acquired from interrupt context. Then, following dead lock can occur. Assume "A" as a page. CPU0: lock_page_cgroup(A) interrupted -> take mapping->tree_lock. CPU1: take mapping->tree_lock -> lock_page_cgroup(A) This patch tries to fix above deadlock by moving memcg's hook to out of mapping->tree_lock. charge/uncharge of pagecache/swapcache is protected by page lock, not tree_lock. After this patch, lock_page_cgroup() is not called under mapping->tree_lock.
