SubjectRe: [PATCH] memory cgroup: update root memory cgroup when node is onlined

Is there any chance we could get rid of the zone backpointer in lruvec
again instead? Adding new nodes is a rare event and so updating every
single memcg in the system might be just borderline crazy. But can't
we just go back to passing the zone along with the lruvec down
vmscan.c paths? I agree it's ugly to pass both, given their
relationship. But I don't think the backpointer is any cleaner but in
addition less robust.

That being said, the crashing code in particular makes me wonder:

static __always_inline void add_page_to_lru_list(struct page *page,
struct lruvec *lruvec, enum lru_list lru)
{
int nr_pages = hpage_nr_pages(page);
mem_cgroup_update_lru_size(lruvec, lru, nr_pages);
list_add(&page->lru, &lruvec->lists[lru]);
__mod_zone_page_state(lruvec_zone(lruvec), NR_LRU_BASE + lru, nr_pages);
}

Why did we ever pass zone in here and then felt the need to replace it
with lruvec->zone in fa9add6 "mm/memcg: apply add/del_page to lruvec"?
A page does not roam between zones, its zone is a static property that
can be retrieved with page_zone().
