I think
- yes, the task, 'current', can be moved off from the cgroup.
- rcu_read_lock() prevents ->destroy() cgroup.

Then, the concern is that the cgroup may have resource usage even after
->pre_destroy() is called. We don't have any serialization between
charging <-> task_move <-> rmdir().

How about taking
write_lock(&mm->mmap_sem)
write_unlock(&mm->mmap_sem)

at moving task (->attach()) ? This will serialize task-move and charging
without any realistic performance impact. If tasks cannot move, rmdir
never happens.

Maybe you can do this later as an optimization. So, please take this as
an suggestion.

Thanks,
-Kame
