memcg: fix refcnt going negative
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 1 Oct 2009 22:44:08 +0000 (15:44 -0700)]
__mem_cgroup_largest_soft_limit_node() returns a mem_cgroup_per_zone "mz"
with incremnted mz->mem->css's refcnt.  Then, the caller of this function
has to call css_put(mz->mem->css).

But, mz can be !NULL even if "not found" i.e.  without css_get().  By
this, css->refcnt will go down to minus.

This may cause various things...one of results will be
initite-loop in css_tryget()  as this.

Above shows CPU0 caught in css_tryget()'s inifinite loop because
of bad refcnt.

This is a fix to set mz=NULL at the top of retry path.
