Can we avoid adding this perf cgroup subsystem? It has 2 disavantages:

- If one mounted cgroup fs without perf cgroup subsys, he can't monitor it.
- If there are several different cgroup mount points, only one can be
monitored.

To choose which cgroup hierarchy to monitor, hierarchy id can be passed
from userspace, which is the 2nd column below:

$ cat /proc/cgroups
#subsys_name hierarchy num_cgroups enabled
debug 0 1 1
net_cls 0 1 1
