memcg,thp: fix res_counter:96 regression
Occasionally, testing memcg's move_charge_at_immigrate on rc7 shows
a flurry of hundreds of warnings at kernel/res_counter.c:96, where
res_counter_uncharge_locked() does WARN_ON(counter->usage < val).
The first trace of each flurry implicates __mem_cgroup_cancel_charge()
of mc.precharge, and an audit of mc.precharge handling points to
mem_cgroup_move_charge_pte_range()'s THP handling in commit 12724850e806
("memcg: avoid THP split in task migration").
Checking !mc.precharge is good everywhere else, when a single page is to
be charged; but here the "mc.precharge -= HPAGE_PMD_NR" likely to
follow, is liable to result in underflow (a lot can change since the
precharge was estimated).
Simply check against HPAGE_PMD_NR: there's probably a better
alternative, trying precharge for more, splitting if unsuccessful; but
this one-liner is safer for now - no kernel/res_counter.c:96 warnings
seen in 26 hours.
