We have single pids cgroup hierarchy which is shared among all VEs.
So when we start several VEs, cgroup_add_ve_root_files() will be called
more than once for the single pids cgroup, leading to:
       "cgroup_add_ve_root_files: failed to add cgroup.subgroups_limit, err=-17"

This may seem as harmless message at first, but it is not because cgroup_add_file()
doesn't handle error properly:

	cfe = kzalloc(sizeof(*cfe), GFP_KERNEL);
	dentry->d_fsdata = cfe;
	error = cgroup_create_file(dentry, mode | S_IFREG, cgrp->root->sb);
	if (!error) {
		list_add_tail(&cfe->node, &parent->files);
		cfe = NULL;

	return error;

As one can see above we leave freed cfe in dentry if cgroup_create_file() fails.
So let's make sure that we call cgroup_add_ve_root_files() only once per
cgroup to avoid that problem and message in dmesg as well.
