I found a reproducer and the commit.

Here is a patch to use CSS_TASK_ITER_PROCS.

Subject: [PATCH] mm: memcontrol: Use CSS_TASK_ITER_PROCS at mem_cgroup_scan_tasks().

Since commit c03cd7738a83b137 ("cgroup: Include dying leaders with live
threads in PROCS iterations") corrected how CSS_TASK_ITER_PROCS works,
mem_cgroup_scan_tasks() can use CSS_TASK_ITER_PROCS in order to check
only one thread from each thread group.
