Merge branch 'for-3.7-fixes' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/cgroup
Pull cgroup fixes from Tejun Heo: "This pull request contains three fixes. Two are reverts of task_lock() removal in cgroup fork path. The optimizations incorrectly assumed that threadgroup_lock can protect process forks (as opposed to thread creations) too. Further cleanup of cgroup fork path is scheduled. The third fixes cgroup emptiness notification loss." * 'for-3.7-fixes' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/cgroup: Revert "cgroup: Remove task_lock() from cgroup_post_fork()" Revert "cgroup: Drop task_lock(parent) on cgroup_fork()" cgroup: notify_on_release may not be triggered in some cases
