What problems are you currently running into during creation? Won't
the fact that the css for the cgroup has been created, and its pointer
been stored in the cgroup, be sufficient?

Or is the problem that a cgroup that fails creation half-way could
result in the memory code alreadying having taken a reference on the
memcg, which can't then be cleanly destroyed?
