Apologies, you really found a minor memleak in case of memcg
accounting failure.

I was too optimistic that there wasn't really a bug, I thought it was
some confusion about the hpage usage that differs with numa and not
numa.

On a side note, the CONFIG_NUMA case will later change further to move
the allocation out of the mmap_sem write mode to make the fs
submitting I/O from userland and doing memory allocations in the I/O
paths happier.
