We used to have per-cpu memcg and lruvec stats and the readers have to
traverse and sum the stats from each cpu. This summing was racy and may
expose transient negative values. So, an explicit check was added to
avoid such scenarios. Now these stats are moved to rstat infrastructure
and are no more per-cpu, so we can remove the fixup for transient
negative values.
