Subject[PATCH -next] hugetlb_cgroup: fix illegal access to memory
From
This appears to be a mistake in commit faced7e0806cf ("mm: hugetlb
controller for cgroups v2"). Essentially that commit does
a hugetlb_cgroup_from_counter assuming that page_counter_try_charge has
initialized counter, but if page_counter_try_charge has failed then it
seems it does not initialize counter, so
hugetlb_cgroup_from_counter(counter) ends up pointing to random memory,
causing kasan to complain.

Solution, simply use h_cg, instead of
hugetlb_cgroup_from_counter(counter), since that is a reference to the
hugetlb_cgroup anyway. After this change kasan ceases to complain.
