Hm.. Looks like it will break eventfd semantics:

1. One eventfd can be used for deliver more then one notification from
one or more cgroups. POLLHUP on removing one of cgroups is not valid.

2. It's valid to have eventfd opened only by one userspace application. We
should not close it, just because cgroup is removed.

I think problem with multiple threads waiting an event on eventfd should
be handled in userspace.
