We seem to have lost some notify_on_release() checks - maybe move that
to check_for_release()?

Is css_get() the right place to be putting this? It's not clear to me
why a subsystem taking a refcount on a cgroup's state should render it
releasable when it drops that refcount.

Should we maybe clear the CGRP_RELEASABLE flag right before doing the
userspace callback?
