Maybe my English sucks..
By "gained a reference", doesn't it mean get_css_set()? But this
put_css_set() is not against the get() just called.
And in fact the ref can be 0 before this put(), because task_exit
can drop the last ref, but put_css_set() will check this case,
so it's Ok.

Quoted from Documentation/CodingStyle:
...Such a value can be represented as an error-code integer
(-Exxx = failure, 0 = success) or a "succeeded" boolean (0 = failure,
non-zero = success).
