This is a crash on

list_add(&child->cg_list, &child->cgroups->tasks);

in cgroup_post_fork(). So it looks like child->cgroups->tasks.next is
a deleted list element. But there are no places that modify that list
outside of write_lock(&css_set_lock) as far as I can see, so I'm a bit
confused as to what the problem could be. I'll try to reproduce this.
