Merge branch 'for-3.3' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/cgroup
* 'for-3.3' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/cgroup: (21 commits) cgroup: fix to allow mounting a hierarchy by name cgroup: move assignement out of condition in cgroup_attach_proc() cgroup: Remove task_lock() from cgroup_post_fork() cgroup: add sparse annotation to cgroup_iter_start() and cgroup_iter_end() cgroup: mark cgroup_rmdir_waitq and cgroup_attach_proc() as static cgroup: only need to check oldcgrp==newgrp once cgroup: remove redundant get/put of task struct cgroup: remove redundant get/put of old css_set from migrate cgroup: Remove unnecessary task_lock before fetching css_set on migration cgroup: Drop task_lock(parent) on cgroup_fork() cgroups: remove redundant get/put of css_set from css_set_check_fetched() resource cgroups: remove bogus cast cgroup: kill subsys->can_attach_task(), pre_attach() and attach_task() cgroup, cpuset: don't use ss->pre_attach() cgroup: don't use subsys->can_attach_task() or ->attach_task() cgroup: introduce cgroup_taskset and use it in subsys->can_attach(), cancel_attach() and attach() cgroup: improve old cgroup handling in cgroup_attach_proc() cgroup: always lock threadgroup during migration threadgroup: extend threadgroup_lock() to cover exit and exec threadgroup: rename signal->threadgroup_fork_lock to ->group_rwsem ... Fix up conflict in kernel/cgroup.c due to commit e0197aae59e5: "cgroups: fix a css_set not found bug in cgroup_attach_proc" that already mentioned that the bug is fixed (differently) in Tejun's cgroup patchset. This one, in other words.

Called when a task attach operation has failed after can_attach() has succeeded.
A subsystem whose can_attach() has some side-effects should provide this
function, so that the subsystem can implement a rollback. If not, not necessary.
