Subject[PATCH v3] mm: memcontrol: reword obsolete comment of mem_cgroup_unmark_under_oom()
Since commit 79dfdaccd1d5 ("memcg: make oom_lock 0 and 1 based rather than
counter"), the mem_cgroup_unmark_under_oom() is added and the comment of
the mem_cgroup_oom_unlock() is moved here. But this comment make no sense
here because mem_cgroup_oom_lock() does not operate on under_oom field. So
we reword the comment as this would be helpful.
[Thanks Michal Hocko for rewording this comment.]
