    ms/mm/list_lru.c: avoid error-path NULL pointer deref
    commit 1bc11d70b5db7c6bb1414b283d7f09b1fe1ac0d0 upsteram.
    As described in https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=177821:
    After some analysis it seems to be that the problem is in alloc_super().
    In case list_lru_init_memcg() fails it goes into destroy_super(), which
    calls list_lru_destroy().
    And in list_lru_init() we see that in case memcg_init_list_lru() fails,
    lru->node is freed, but not set NULL, which then leads list_lru_destroy()
    to believe it is initialized and call memcg_destroy_list_lru().
    memcg_destroy_list_lru() in turn can access lru->node[i].memcg_lrus,
    which is NULL.
