res_counter: return amount of charges after res_counter_uncharge()
It is useful to know how many charges are still left after a call to res_counter_uncharge. While it is possible to issue a res_counter_read after uncharge, this can be racy. If we need, for instance, to take some action when the counters drop down to 0, only one of the callers should see it. This is the same semantics as the atomic variables in the kernel. Since the current return value is void, we don't need to worry about anything breaking due to this change: nobody relied on that, and only users appearing from now on will be checking this value.
