Subject[PATCH 14/23] slub: provide kmalloc_no_account
Date
Some allocations need to be accounted to the root memcg regardless
of their context. One trivial example, is the allocations we do
during the memcg slab cache creation themselves. Strictly speaking,
they could go to the parent, but it is way easier to bill them to
the root cgroup.

Only generic kmalloc allocations are allowed to be bypassed.

The function is not exported, because drivers code should always
be accounted.
