commit 484ebb3b8c8b27dd2171696462a3116edb9ff801 upstream.

mem_cgroup_read_stat() returns a page count by summing per cpu page
counters.  The summing is racy wrt.  updates, so a transient negative
sum is possible.  Callers don't want negative values:

 - mem_cgroup_wb_stats() doesn't want negative nr_dirty or nr_writeback.
   This could confuse dirty throttling.

 - oom reports and memory.stat shouldn't show confusing negative usage.

 - tree_usage() already avoids negatives.

Avoid returning negative page counts from mem_cgroup_read_stat() and
convert it to unsigned.
