Subject[PATCH 3.6/13] memcg: add function to move account.
Sorry, this patchs is after "3.5" , before "4"....
==
This patch provides a function to move account information of a page between
mem_cgroups.

This moving of page_cgroup is done under
- the page is locked.
- lru_lock of source/destination mem_cgroup is held.

Then, a routine which touches pc->mem_cgroup without page_lock() should
confirm pc->mem_cgroup is still valid or not. Typlical code can be following.

(while page is not under lock_page())
mem = pc->mem_cgroup;
mz = page_cgroup_zoneinfo(pc)
spin_lock_irqsave(&mz->lru_lock);
if (pc->mem_cgroup == mem)
...../* some list handling */
spin_unlock_irq(&mz->lru_lock);
If you find page_cgroup from mem_cgroup's LRU under mz->lru_lock, you don't
have to worry about anything.

Changelog: (v3) -> (v4)
- no changes.
Changelog: (v2) -> (v3)
- added lock_page_cgroup().
- splitted out from new-force-empty patch.
- added how-to-use text.
- fixed race in __mem_cgroup_uncharge_common().
