During rmdir of memory cgroup we might have a lot of anonymous pages
(e.g. KSM merged them a lot). Currently our offline cgroup callback
will try to swap them out to release mem cgroup sooner. But this
can take a while, and we do this under global cgroup mutex.
Also forcefully swapping such pages is just bad as they might
be actively in use. So just reclaim without swapping in offline
