SubjectRe: cgroup: rmdir() does not complete

I have a system showing the failure case (but still do not have a way to
reliably repeat it)

Here are the two processes:

23586 pts/0 RL+ 5059:18 /net/homes/mhills/tmp/soaked-cgroup
23685 pts/6 DL+ 0:00 /net/homes/mhills/tmp/soaked-cgroup

23586 spends almost all of its time in 'RL+' status, occasionally it is
seen in 'DL+' status.

From my analysis before, both are blocked on rmdir(), but one is spinning,
holding the lock on the /cgroup, and the other is waiting for the lock. If
I strace 23586 then the rmdir() fails with EINTR.

How best to capture information which might show why the process spins?
