memcg: fix endless loop caused by mem_cgroup_iter
commit ecc736fc3c71c411a9d201d8588c9e7e049e5d8c upstream. Hugh has reported an endless loop when the hardlimit reclaim sees the same group all the time. This might happen when the reclaim races with the memcg removal. shrink_zone [rmdir root] mem_cgroup_iter(root, NULL, reclaim) // prev = NULL rcu_read_lock() mem_cgroup_iter_load last_visited = iter->last_visited // gets root || NULL css_tryget(last_visited) // failed last_visited = NULL [1] memcg = root = __mem_cgroup_iter_next(root, NULL) mem_cgroup_iter_update iter->last_visited = root; reclaim->generation = iter->generation mem_cgroup_iter(root, root, reclaim) // prev = root rcu_read_lock mem_cgroup_iter_load last_visited = iter->last_visited // gets root css_tryget(last_visited) // failed [1] The issue seemed to be introduced by commit 5f5781619718 ("memcg: relax memcg iter caching") which has replaced unconditional css_get/css_put by css_tryget/css_put for the cached iterator. This patch fixes the issue by skipping css_tryget on the root of the tree walk in mem_cgroup_iter_load and symmetrically doesn't release it in mem_cgroup_iter_update.
