You are correct. "[PATCH 2/2] cgroup: Remove call to synchronize_rcu in 
cgroup_attach_task" improved the performance.

To be more correct, I tested this patch (eg. "cgroup: Set 
CGRP_RELEASABLE when adding to a cgroup") to the degree that it didn't 
appear to cause any stability or functional regressions when performing 
the simple benchmark procedure described above. I did also test "[PATCH 
2/2] cgroup: Remove call to synchronize_rcu in cgroup_attach_task" 
independently of this patch to verify that it alone improved the 
performance.

Thanks,
Mike
