Hi Johannes:

This is the change for the hierarchy_walk() sent on the other patch,
also including a fix. Please consider to fold in your patch:

Fix the hierarchy_walk() in the unevictable page rescue scanner

the patch including changes
1. adjust the change in hierarchy_walk() which needs to hold the reference to
the first mem_cgroup.
2. add stop_hierarchy_walk() at the end which is missed on the original patch.
