mm, memcg: do not retry precharge charges
commit 3674534b775354516e5c148ea48f51d4d1909a78 upstream. When memory.move_charge_at_immigrate is enabled and precharges are depleted during move, mem_cgroup_move_charge_pte_range() will attempt to increase the size of the precharge. Prevent precharges from ever looping by setting __GFP_NORETRY. This was probably the intention of the GFP_KERNEL & ~__GFP_NORETRY, which is pointless as written.
