Well, I do not see the code to look weird TBH. There is nothing wrong in
doing the check for the root memcg. It is a bit pointless but it is not
incorrect.

From my POV, I prefer changes that either fix something (correctness
issue or a performance issue/improvement) or improve readbility. The
check doesn't fix anything and I am not convinced about an improved
readabilit either.

Thanks for the patch anyway!
