cgroup: clean up the kernel configuration menu nomenclature
The config options for the different cgroup controllers use various terms: resource controller, cgroup subsystem, etc. Simplify this to "controller", which is clear enough in the cgroup context. Signed-off-by: Johannes Weiner <hannes@cmpxchg.org> Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>
