Roman and I have talked a bunch about the function names here. They're
not optimal, with mod_lruvec_state() doing the entire intersection -
node, memcg, lruvec - and mod_memcg_lruvec_state() being a specific
version that does not update the node.

However, the usecases for mod_memcg_lruvec_state() are highly
specific, so the function won't be widely used. As such, it received
the longer name, and we get to keep the shorter mod_lruvec_state() for
the much more widely used function.
