I (Hugh) tried to test it on v5.5-rc5, but did not get very far at all -
perhaps because my particular interest tends towards tmpfs and swap,
and swap always made trouble for lruvec lock - one of the reasons why
our patches were more complicated than you thought necessary.

Booted a smallish kernel in mem=700M with 1.5G of swap, with intention
of running small kernel builds in tmpfs and in ext4-on-loop-on-tmpfs
(losetup was the last command started but I doubt it played much part):

mount -t tmpfs -o size=470M tmpfs /tst
cp /dev/zero /tst
losetup /dev/loop0 /tst/zero

and kernel crashed on the

VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(lruvec_memcg(lruvec) != page->mem_cgroup, page);
kernel BUG at mm/memcontrol.c:1268!
