idr_replace() is disabled in CONFIG_MEMCG && CONFIG_SLOB case, and this is
wrong.

0a432dcbeb32edcd211a5d8f7847d0da7642a8b4 goes in the series, which enables
shrinker_idr infrastructure for huge_memory.c's deferred_split_shrinker
in CONFIG_MEMCG case. Previously, all SHRINKER_MEMCG_AWARE shrinkers were
based on LRUs, and they remain to base of CONFIG_MEMCG_KMEM.
But deferred_split_shrinker is an exception.

In CONFIG_MEMCG && CONFIG_SLOB case, shrinker_idr contains only shrinker,
and it is deferred_split_shrinker. But it is never actually called, since
idr_replace() is never compiled. deferred_split_shrinker all the time is
staying in half-registered state, and it's never called for subordinate
mem cgroups.

So, this is a BUG, and this should go to stable.
