Subject[PATCH] mm: avoid bothering interrupted task when charge memcg in softirq
try_charge maybe executed in packet receive path, which is in interrupt
In this situation, the 'current' is the interrupted task, which may has
no relation to the rx softirq, So it is nonsense to use 'current'.

Avoid bothering the interrupted if page_counter_try_charge failes.
