I think dropping it lazily has advantage as once the cic->cfqq association
is set, we don't worry about cgroups at all.

Otherwise on every IO, we will end up comparing submitting tasks's
cgroup and cic/cfqq's cgroup.

Also this will create problems, if two threads sharing io context are
in two different cgroups. We will frequently end up changing the
association.

So comparing probably is not a very good idea. Doing something
synchronously might be better if you don't like CGROUP_CHANGED
bit in ioc.

Thanks
Vivek
