Yes, the existing code doesn't seem quite right - if !CONFIG_MM_OWNER
then we don't need to even define a trivial version of
cgroup_mm_owner_callbacks()

But your patch is too specific - tying the existance of
cgroup_mm_owner_callbacks() to the memory controller would break other
controllers (e.g. the memrlimit or swap controllers, which also want
to use it)

How about:

- any cgroup that needs mm-owner callbacks selects an option
CGROUP_MM_OWNER_CALLBACK

- CGROUP_MM_OWNER_CALLBACK selects MM_OWNER and triggers the
definition of a non-trivial cgroup_mm_owner_callbacks() function
