mm: fix race between kmem_cache destroy, create and deactivate

The memcg kmem cache creation and deactivation (SLUB only) is
asynchronous.  If a root kmem cache is destroyed whose memcg cache is in
the process of creation or deactivation, the kernel may crash.

Example of one such crash:
	general protection fault: 0000 [#1] SMP PTI
	CPU: 1 PID: 1721 Comm: kworker/14:1 Not tainted 4.17.0-smp
	...
	Workqueue: memcg_kmem_cache kmemcg_deactivate_workfn
	RIP: 0010:has_cpu_slab
	...
	Call Trace:
	? on_each_cpu_cond
	__kmem_cache_shrink
	kmemcg_cache_deact_after_rcu
	kmemcg_deactivate_workfn
	process_one_work
	worker_thread
	kthread
	ret_from_fork+0x35/0x40

To fix this race, on root kmem cache destruction, mark the cache as
dying and flush the workqueue used for memcg kmem cache creation and
deactivation.  SLUB's memcg kmem cache deactivation also includes RCU
callback and thus make sure all previous registered RCU callbacks have
completed as well.

[shakeelb@google.com: v3.  Instead of refcount, flush the workqueue]
