Subject[PATCH] mm: memcontrol: fix NR_WRITEBACK leak in memcg and system stats
Date
After the ("a983b5ebee57 mm: memcontrol: fix excessive complexity in
memory.stat reporting"), we observed slowly upward creeping
NR_WRITEBACK counts over the course of several days, both the
per-memcg stats as well as the system counter in e.g. /proc/meminfo.

The conversion from full per-cpu stat counts to per-cpu cached atomic
stat counts introduced an irq-unsafe RMW operation into the updates.

Most stat updates come from process context, but one notable exception
is the NR_WRITEBACK counter. While writebacks are issued from process
context, they are retired from (soft)irq context.

When writeback completions interrupt the RMW counter updates of new
writebacks being issued, the decs from the completions are lost.

Since the global updates are routed through the joint lruvec API, both
the memcg counters as well as the system counters are affected.

This patch makes the joint stat and event API irq safe.
