I didn't realize this.. and if a cgroup is removed, the woken thread may not
be the thread that is waiting on this cgroup. How crappy.. I don't know how
userspace is going to deal with all these.

And another bug spotted. We can pass fd of memory.usage_in_bytes of cgroup A
to cgroup.event_control of cgroup B, and then we won't get memory usage
notification from A but B! What's worse, if A and B are in different mount
hierarchy, boom!
