1. Currently release_agent is a mount-wide cgroup property, single for whole hierarchy. It is
not possible to override it's value for a cgroup down the hierarchy, which is a virtual root
for a container.
2. Code that spawnes release_agent notification processes, does so from ve0, inside of a container
any logic that waits for notifications of empty cgroups will fail, 
see for an example of such problem with systemd.

In this patchset release_agent is moved from 'struct cgroupfs_root' to 'struct cgroup', enabling
the possibility to set release_agent per-ve.
Also 'struct cgroup' recieves a pointer to owning ve, so that release_agent notifications
could be spawned under the right ve.

v1: Removed complex locking scheme for ve_owner<->cgroup binding.
v2: release_agent_path protected by RCU
v3: cgroup_root_from_opts uses ..set_release_agent helper without lockdep
v4: fixed possible race at cgroup_release_agent
v5: Use per-ve workqueue to maintain per-ve cgroups notifications
v6: rebased to latest branch
v7: Fixed lockdeps, removed dependency from is_running param.
v8: cgroup_rcu_strdup uses strlcpy, ve_get_release_agent releases list spinlock early,
    patchset was split into lesser changes.
v9: rearranged cgroup_mark_ve_root with ve_workqueue_start, added lost kfree

Valeriy Vdovin (9):
  ve/cgroup: implemented per-ve workqueue.
  cgroup: added rcu node string wrapper for in-cgroup usage.
  cgroup: declared cgroup_mark_ve_root in public header
  cgroup: exported __put_css_set and wrappers to cgroup.h
  ve/cgroup: saving root_css to ve
  ve/cgroup: unmark ve-root cgroups at container stop
  ve/cgroup: moved cgroup release notifications to per-ve workqueues.
  ve/cgroup: private per-cgroup-root data container
  ve/cgroup: set release_agent_path for root cgroups separately for each
