Since alloc_page_buffers() holds the page lock throughout the entire
time it uses the memcg, there is no actual reason for it to use RCU or
even acquire an additional reference on the css. We know it's pinned,
the charge pins it, and the page lock pins the charge. It can neither
move to a different cgroup nor be uncharged.

So what do you say we switch alloc_page_buffers() to page_memcg()?

And because that removes the last user of get_mem_cgroup_from_page(),
we can kill it off and worry about a good interface once a consumer
materializes for it.
