I really absolutely hate the cpuset only feature. The whole point of
kthreadd's existence is to provide a clean environment to spawn kthreads
from. Adding kthreadd to controllers violates this premise.

New and fresh kthreads should always get a bare minimum state, this
includes not being part of any particular cgroup.
