commit bb78a92f47696b2da49f2692b6a9fa56d07c444a upstream.

On 3.11-rc we are seeing cgroup directories left behind when they should
have been removed.  Here's a trivial reproducer:

cd /sys/fs/cgroup/memory
mkdir parent parent/child; rmdir parent/child parent
rmdir: failed to remove `parent': Device or resource busy

It's because cgroup_destroy_locked() (step 1 of destruction) leaves
cgroup on parent's children list, letting cgroup_offline_fn() (step 2 of
destruction) remove it; but step 2 is run by work queue, which may not
yet have removed the children when parent destruction checks the list.

Fix that by checking through a non-empty list of children: if every one
of them has already been marked CGRP_DEAD, then it's safe to proceed:
those children are invisible to userspace, and should not obstruct rmdir.

(I didn't see any reason to keep the cgrp->children checks under the
unrelated css_set_lock, so moved them out.)

tj: Flattened nested ifs a bit and updated comment so that it's
    correct on both for-3.11-fixes and for-3.12.
