css_is_ancestor is checking css->id (and hierarchy stack). What we need here is
to guarantee css is valid object.

Here, we have reference count of both of oom_wait_info->mem and wake_mem.
Then, ->css is always vaild and it's "id" is stable under us.

Hmm, maybe this comment is too short.
/* both of oom_wait_info->mem and wake_mem are stable under us */
I'll prepare some update.


Thanks,
