memcg: remove the overhead associated with the root cgroup
Change the memory cgroup to remove the overhead associated with accounting all pages in the root cgroup. As a side-effect, we can no longer set a memory hard limit in the root cgroup. A new flag to track whether the page has been accounted or not has been added as well. Flags are now set atomically for page_cgroup, pcg_default_flags is now obsolete and removed.
