memcg: unify sync and async per-cpu charge cache draining
Currently we have two ways how to drain per-CPU caches for charges. drain_all_stock_sync will synchronously drain all caches while drain_all_stock_async will asynchronously drain only those that refer to a given memory cgroup or its subtree in hierarchy. Targeted async draining has been introduced by 26fe6168 (memcg: fix percpu cached charge draining frequency) to reduce the cpu workers number. sync draining is currently triggered only from mem_cgroup_force_empty which is triggered only by userspace (mem_cgroup_force_empty_write) or when a cgroup is removed (mem_cgroup_pre_destroy). Although these are not usually frequent operations it still makes some sense to do targeted draining as well, especially if the box has many CPUs. This patch unifies both methods to use the single code (drain_all_stock) which relies on the original async implementation and just adds flush_work to wait on all caches that are still under work for the sync mode. We are using FLUSHING_CACHED_CHARGE bit check to prevent from waiting on a work that we haven't triggered. Please note that both sync and async functions are currently protected by percpu_charge_mutex so we cannot race with other drainers.
