memcg: css_alloc should return an ERR_PTR value on error
mem_cgroup_css_alloc() was returning NULL on failure while cgroup core expected it to return an ERR_PTR value leading to the following NULL deref after a css allocation failure. Fix it by return ERR_PTR(-ENOMEM) instead. I'll also update cgroup core so that it can handle NULL returns. mkdir: page allocation failure: order:6, mode:0x240c0c0(GFP_KERNEL|__GFP_COMP|__GFP_ZERO) CPU: 0 PID: 8738 Comm: mkdir Not tainted 4.7.0-rc3+ #123 ...
