How about this ?

Now, vmscan_stat's hierarchy counter just counts scan data which
is caused by the owner of limits. Then, it's not 'hierarchical'
as other parts of memcg does.

For example, Assuming following hierarchy

A
/
B
/
C

When B,C, is scanned because of A's limit, vmscan_stat's
hierarchy accounting does
A's hierarchy scan = A'scan + B'scan + C'scan
B's hierarchy scan = 0
C's hierarchy scan = 0
This first design was because the author considered C's
scan is caused by A. But considering interface compatibility,
following is natural.

A's hierarchy scan = A'scan + B'scan + C'scan
B's hierarchy scan = B'scan + C'scan
C's hierarchy scan = C'scan

This patch changes counting implementation.
