No, I don't believe so...

Right, but it's not defined until commit 54b39d263704 "cgroup: cgroup
namespace setns support", however it is first used in the preceeding
commit f176ae3a5df6 "cgroup: introduce cgroup namespaces".  The bad
patch ordering breaks bisection.

Commit 54b39d263704 "cgroup: cgroup namespace setns support" not
booting is a separate issue.
