memcg: improve performance in moving swap charge
Try to reduce overheads in moving swap charge by: - Adds a new function(__mem_cgroup_put), which takes "count" as a arg and decrement mem->refcnt by "count". - Removed res_counter_uncharge, css_put, and mem_cgroup_put from the path of moving swap account, and consolidate all of them into mem_cgroup_clear_mc. We cannot do that about mc.to->refcnt. These changes reduces the overhead from 1.35sec to 0.9sec to move charges of 1G anonymous memory(including 500MB swap) in my test environment.
