Yes, I'm supposed "maps" means "info". I'm supposed the most shrinkers
should be registered at boot time, and typically very few memcgs are
created at boot time so I didn't treat it as a hot path.

> What do you think about batching here?

Just off the top of my head, we could allocate, for example, 64
nr_deferred (64 * sizeof(atomic_long_t)) so that we just need to
expand info for every 64 shrinker registrations. Maybe define it
depends on the machine (64 bit - 64, 32 bit - 32).

Why 64? Basically a magic number. And when I was investigating that
list_lru reparent race issue
(https://lore.kernel.org/linux-mm/20201202171749.264354-1-shy828301@gmail.com/)
I happened to notice that there are at most 64 shrinkers registered in
our production environment (a typical data center configuration).

How do you think about it?
