No, the idea is that even though we had a reference that we already
dropped, we in effect "traded" the newcg to the task for its oldcg,
giving it our reference on newcg and gaining its reference on oldcg. I
believe the cgroup_mutex guarantees that it'll still be there when we
do the trade - perhaps a BUG_ON(tsk->cgroups != oldcg) is wanted
inside the second task_lock section there? At the very least, a
clearer comment.

I was sticking with the convention of nonzero return values indicating
failure, as is used everywhere else in this context.
