mm: memcontrol: make per-cpu charge cache IRQ-safe for socket accounting

During cgroup2 rollout into production, we started encountering css
refcount underflows and css access crashes in the memory controller.
Splitting the heavily shared css reference counter into logical users
narrowed the imbalance down to the cgroup2 socket memory accounting.

The problem turns out to be the per-cpu charge cache.  Cgroup1 had a
separate socket counter, but the new cgroup2 socket accounting goes
through the common charge path that uses a shared per-cpu cache for all
memory that is being tracked.  Those caches are safe against scheduling
preemption, but not against interrupts - such as the newly added packet
receive path.  When cache draining is interrupted by network RX taking
pages out of the cache, the resuming drain operation will put references
of in-use pages, thus causing the imbalance.

Disable IRQs during all per-cpu charge cache operations.
