That and adding a stub function in case !MEMCG.

This is just a trivial remark regarding comment formatting. They usually
put a space between the number and the first word in the sentence, i.e.
between '1)' and 'Caller' in your case.

OK, I see.

But it won't break anything if we clear bit for prealloc-ed, but not yet
registered shrinkers, will it?

It just looks rather counter-intuitive to me to use shrinker->list to
differentiate between registered and unregistered shrinkers. May be, I'm
wrong. If you are sure that this is OK, I'm fine with it, but then
please add a comment here explaining what this check is needed for.

Thanks.
