I only glanced the patch description but the problem I'm trying to
solve is locking - currently we don't have a place where a controller
can tell a cgroup is becoming online; thus it has nothing to
synchronized against and tell that a cgroup is alive or not.  As for
css_id allocation, maybe you can deal with that in ->post_create() or
maybe we can allocate css_id earlier (but where would it be stored?).
I'll look into it.
