How about enum memcg_data_flags and PGMEMCG_OBJCG?

The flag names make sense to me, but this shouldn't be using test_bit,
__clear_bit, __set_bit etc. on local variables. It suggests that it's
modifying some shared/global state, when it's just masking out a bit
during a read. We usually just open-code the bitwise ops for that.
