mm: memcontrol: use "max" instead of "infinity" in control knobs
The memcg control knobs indicate the highest possible value using the symbolic name "infinity", which is long and awkward to type. Switch to the string "max", which is just as descriptive but shorter and sweeter. This changes a user interface, so do it before the release and before the development flag is dropped from the default hierarchy.
