:-) I should have seen that. I am a little lost thinking that
container_rmdir() and the release agent check_for_release() work
without too much knowledge of each other. BTW, what are the semantics
of css_put() is it expected to free the container/run the release agent
when the reference count of the container_subsys_state drops to zero?
