You are absolutely right! I have compltely missed that 3e32cb2e0a12 has
changed the type as well. Should have noticed that during the review.

The whole thing is just way too confusing. All the tracking is done in
page units yet tresholds are in bytes. This only calls for troubles. The
patch below simply turns thresholds to page units as well. I hope I
haven't screwed anything, I didn't get to more than compile test it.

Subject: [PATCH] memcg: Fix thresholds for 32b architectures.

424cdc141380 ("memcg: convert threshold to bytes") has fixed a
regression introduced by 3e32cb2e0a12 ("mm: memcontrol: lockless page
counters") where thresholds were silently converted to use page units
rather than bytes when interpreting the user input.

The fix is not complete, though, as properly pointed out by Ben
Hutchings during stable backport review. The page count is converted
to bytes but unsigned long is used to hold the value which would
be obviously not sufficient for 32b systems with more than 4G
thresholds. The same applies to usage as taken from mem_cgroup_usage
which might overflow.

Let's remove this bytes vs. pages internal tracking differences and
handle thresholds in page units internally. Chage mem_cgroup_usage()
to return the value in page units and revert 424cdc141380 because this
should be sufficient for the consistent handling.
mem_cgroup_read_u64 as the only users of mem_cgroup_usage outside of
the threshold handling code is converted to give the proper in bytes
result. It is doing that already for page_counter output so this is
more consistent as well.

The value presented to the userspace is still in bytes units.

Fixes: 424cdc141380 ("memcg: convert threshold to bytes")
Fixes: 3e32cb2e0a12 ("mm: memcontrol: lockless page counters")
