Subject[patch] mm, memcg: do not retry precharge charges
When memory.move_charge_at_immigrate is enabled and precharges are
depleted during move, mem_cgroup_move_charge_pte_range() will attempt to
increase the size of the precharge.

This livelocks if reclaim fails and if an oom killed process attached to
the destination memcg is trying to exit, which requires
cgroup_threadgroup_rwsem, since we're holding the mutex (we also livelock
while holding mm->mmap_sem for read).

Prevent precharges from ever looping by setting __GFP_NORETRY. This was
probably the intention of the GFP_KERNEL & ~__GFP_NORETRY, which is
pointless as written.

This also restructures mem_cgroup_wait_acct_move() since it is not
possible for mc.moving_task to be current.

Fixes: 0029e19ebf84 ("mm: memcontrol: remove explicit OOM parameter in charge path")
