cgroup: remove bind() method from cgroup_subsys.
The bind() method of cgroup_subsys is not used in any of the controllers (cpuset, freezer, blkio, net_cls, memcg, net_prio, devices, perf, hugetlb, cpu and cpuacct) tj: Removed the entry on ->bind() from Documentation/cgroups/cgroups.txt. Also updated a couple paragraphs which were suggesting that dynamic re-binding may be implemented. It's not gonna.
