This interface has been added to enable mem->css outside of
mm/memcontrol.c (where we define struct mem_cgroup). There is one user
left (hwpoison_filter_task) after recent clean ups.

I think we shouldn't spread the usage inside the mm/memcontrol.c. The
compiler inlines the function for all callers added by this patch but I
wouldn't rely on it. It is also unfortunate that we cannot convert all
dereferences (e.g. const mem_cgroup).
Moreover it doesn't add any additional type safety. So I would vote for
not taking the patch but if others like it I will not block it.
