When we uncharge a slab page via __memcg_kmem_uncharge,
actually, this path forgets to do this for us compared to
uncharge_batch(). Right?

You are right. I did not notice this. Thank you.

I have disassembled the code, I see memcg_oom_recover is not
inline. Maybe because memcg_oom_recover has a lot of callers.
Just guess.

(gdb) disassemble uncharge_batch
[...]
0xffffffff81341c73 <+227>: callq 0xffffffff8133c420 <page_counter_uncharge>
0xffffffff81341c78 <+232>: jmpq 0xffffffff81341bc0 <uncharge_batch+48>
0xffffffff81341c7d <+237>: callq 0xffffffff8133e2c0 <memcg_oom_recover>

OK. Will do this. Thanks.
