Yes, this bug happens when we move a task from a cgroup to another
one, and delete the cgroup. Since the actual move to the new cgroup is
performed in a delayed fashion, if the cgroup is removed before
another request from the task is seen (and the actual move is
performed) , it results in a hit on BUG_ON. I am working on a patch
that will solve this problem and a few others; basically it would do
ref counting for io_group structure. I am having a few problems with
it at the moment; will post the patch as soon as I can get it to work.
