mm: memcg: Correct unregistring of events attached to the same eventfd

There is an issue when memcg unregisters events that were attached to
the same eventfd:

- On the first call mem_cgroup_usage_unregister_event() removes all
  events attached to a given eventfd, and if there were no events left,
  thresholds->primary would become NULL;

- Since there were several events registered, cgroups core will call
  mem_cgroup_usage_unregister_event() again, but now kernel will oops,
  as the function doesn't expect that threshold->primary may be NULL.

That's a good question whether mem_cgroup_usage_unregister_event()
should actually remove all events in one go, but nowadays it can't
do any better as cftype->unregister_event callback doesn't pass
any private event-associated cookie. So, let's fix the issue by
simply checking for threshold->primary.

FWIW, w/o the patch the following oops may be observed:
