    mm/memcg: Fix NULL-ptr dereference when memcg diabled at boot.
    If kernel booted with cgroup_disable=memory, the memcg in mem_cgroup_swappiness()
    could be NULL. Derefernce memcg only if mem_cgroup_disabled() = false,
     BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at           (null)
