memcg: fix use_hierarchy css_is_ancestor oops regression
If use_hierarchy is set, reclaim testing soon oopses in css_is_ancestor() called from __mem_cgroup_same_or_subtree() called from page_referenced(): when processes are exiting, it's easy for mm_match_cgroup() to pass along a NULL memcg coming from a NULL mm->owner. Check for that in __mem_cgroup_same_or_subtree(). Return true or false? False because we cannot know if it was in the hierarchy, but also false because it's better not to count a reference from an exiting process.
