mem_cgroup_do_charge() was written before kmem accounting, and expects
three cases: being called for 1 page, being called for a stock of 32
pages, or being called for a hugepage.  If we call for 2 or 3 pages (and
both the stack and several slabs used in process creation are such, at
least with the debug options I had), it assumed it's being called for
stock and just retried without reclaiming.

Fix that by passing down a minsize argument in addition to the csize.

And what to do about that (csize == PAGE_SIZE && ret) retry?  If it's
needed at all (and presumably is since it's there, perhaps to handle
races), then it should be extended to more than PAGE_SIZE, yet how far?
And should there be a retry count limit, of what?  For now retry up to
COSTLY_ORDER (as page_alloc.c does) and make sure not to do it if

v4: fixed nr pages calculation pointed out by Christoph Lameter.
