Already answered by another good samaritan.

No, that is not my understanding. My understanding is this lock is
needed to protect against the cgroup just disappearing under our nose.

The task reading/writing it is not necessarily inside the cgroup
(usually it is not...), so the mere fact of opening the file does not
guarantee the cgroup will be kept alive. So we can grab a pointer -
cgroup exists - and write to it - cgroup does not exist.

Or am I missing something ?
