Andrew, could you fold this into the patch then?

Subject: [PATCH] memcg: nano-optimize VM_BUG_ON in uncharge_page

Even though VM_BUG* is usually not compiled in there are systems which
enable CONFIG_DEBUG_VM by default. VM_BUG_ON_PAGE in uncharge_page is
not very optimal for the normal case. All pages should have counter==0
so that is the first thing to check. is_zone_device_page is nicely
noop if ZONE_DEVICE is not compiled in and finally HW poison pages
should be least probable. So reorder the check to bail out as early as
possible on normal case.
