cgroup, memcg: move cgroup_event implementation to memcg
cgroup_event is way over-designed and tries to build a generic flexible event mechanism into cgroup - fully customizable event specification for each user of the interface. This is utterly unnecessary and overboard especially in the light of the planned unified hierarchy as there's gonna be single agent. Simply generating events at fixed points, or if that's too restrictive, configureable cadence or single set of configureable points should be enough. Thankfully, memcg is the only user and gets to keep it. Replacing it with something simpler on sane_behavior is strongly recommended. This patch moves cgroup_event and "cgroup.event_control" implementation to mm/memcontrol.c. Clearing of events on cgroup destruction is moved from cgroup_destroy_locked() to mem_cgroup_css_offline(), which shouldn't make any noticeable difference. cgroup_css() and __file_cft() are exported to enable the move; however, this will soon be reverted once the event code is updated to be memcg specific. Note that "cgroup.event_control" will now exist only on the hierarchy with memcg attached to it. While this change is visible to userland, it is unlikely to be noticeable as the file has never been meaningful outside memcg. Aside from the above change, this is pure code relocation. v2: Per Li Zefan's comments, init/Kconfig updated accordingly and poll.h inclusion moved from cgroup.c to memcontrol.c.
