memcg: check that kmem_cache has memcg_params before accessing it
commit 6f6b8951897e487ea6f77b90ea01f70a9c363770 upstream. If the system had a few memory groups and all of them were destroyed, memcg_limited_groups_array_size has non-zero value, but all new caches are created without memcg_params, because memcg_kmem_enabled() returns false. We try to enumirate child caches in a few places and all of them are potentially dangerous. For example my kernel is compiled with CONFIG_SLAB and it crashed when I tryed to mount a NFS share after a few experiments with kmemcg.
