init_net _is_ initialized prior to any network devices getting
registered but not before cgrp_create called via cgroup_init.

#define for_each_netdev(net, d) \
list_for_each_entry(d, &(net)->dev_base_head, dev_list)

but dev_base_head is zeroed at this time. In netdev_init we have,

INIT_LIST_HEAD(&net->dev_base_head);

but we haven't got that far yet because cgroup_init is called
before do_initcalls().
