Subject[PATCH -v2] freezer_cg: disable writing freezer.state of root cgroup
With this change, control file 'freezer.state' doesn't exist in root
cgroup, making root cgroup unfreezable.

I think it's reasonable to disallow freeze tasks in the root cgroup.
And then we can avoid fork overhead when freezer subsystem is
compiled but not used.

Also make writing invalid value to freezer.state returns EINVAL
rather than EIO. This is more consistent with other cgroup subsystem.

patch is based on freezer_cg-remove-task_lock-from-freezer_fork.patch
