Subject[BUGFIX][PATCH] memcg: ensure list is empty at rmdir
Current mem_cgroup_force_empty() only ensures mem->res.usage == 0 on success.
So there can be a case that the usage is zero but some of the LRUs are not
empty if all of those pages have already been uncharged by the owner process.

OTOH, mem_cgroup_del_lru_list(), which can be called asynchronously with rmdir,
accesses the mem_cgroup, so this access can cause a problem if it races with
rmdir because the mem_cgroup might have been freed by rmdir.

Actually, I saw a bug which seems to be caused by this race.

[1530745.950651] Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed!
This patch tries to fix this bug by ensuring not only the usage is zero but also
all of the LRUs are empty. mem_cgroup_force_empty_list() checks the list is empty
or not, so we can make use of it.
