The patch was originally based on the linux tree. Then I applied it onto
linux-next without any issue. Unfortunately, I failed to notice that the
hunk was applied to memcg_reparent_list_lru_node() without realizing
that it is the new name for the old memcg_drain_list_lru_node(). The
linux-next tree that I used does have all the necessary patches.
