    Subject[patch 1/8] memcg: remove unused retry signal from reclaim
    If the memcg reclaim code detects the target memcg below its limit it
    exits and returns a guaranteed non-zero value so that the charge is

    Nowadays, the charge side checks the memcg limit itself and does not
    rely on this non-zero return value trick.

    This patch removes it. The reclaim code will now always return the
    true number of pages it reclaimed on its own.
