Git bisect points to following patch:

commit 29bf1eb7d2abbdfc24c4ef7acf7a51b72dc43d2b
    memcg: drop kmem.limit_in_bytes

Does the testcase madvise06 need an update?

90         tst_res(TINFO, "\tCached: %ld Kb",
91                 SAFE_READ_MEMINFO("Cached:") - init_cached);
93         print_cgmem("memory.current");
94         print_cgmem("memory.swap.current");
95         print_cgmem("memory.kmem.usage_in_bytes”);  <<== this line. 
96 }

If I comment line 95 from the testcase, it completes successfully.
