This is unnecessary complexity in the cgroup subsystem (and seems to
miss cleanup for subsystems that have previously had their fork()
method return success).

If you want a subsystem to be able to reject a fork, I think it's
better to have that subsystem be called explicitly from do_fork(), and
keep that logic out of cgroups.
