mm: handle no memcg case in memcg_kmem_charge() properly

Mike Galbraith reported a regression caused by the commit 9b6f7e16
("mm: rework memcg kernel stack accounting") on a system with
"cgroup_disable=memory" boot option: the system panics with the following
stack trace:

  BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00000000000000f8

The problem occurs because get_mem_cgroup_from_current() returns the NULL
pointer if memory controller is disabled.  Let's check if this is a case
at the beginning of memcg_kmem_charge() and just return 0 if
mem_cgroup_disabled() returns true.  This is how we handle this case in
many other places in the memory controller code.
