That would restore the gripe.  How about this..

mm, memcg: serialize consume_stock(), drain_local_stock() and refill_stock()

Haiyang HY1 Tan reports encountering races between drain_stock() and
refill_stock(), resulting in drain_stock() draining stock freshly assigned
by refill_stock(). This doesn't appear to have been safe before RT touched
any of it due do drain_local_stock() being preemptible until db2ba40c277d
came along and disabled irqs across the lot. Rather than do that with
the upstream RT replacement with local_lock_irqsave/restore() since
older trees don't yet need to be irq safe, use the local lock name and
placement for consistency, but serialize with get/put_locked_var().

The below may not deserve full credit for the breakage, but it surely
didn't help, so tough, it gets to wear the BPB.
