Subject[PATCH v2] cgroup: fix top cgroup refcnt leak
If we mount the same cgroupfs in serveral mount points, and then
umount all of them, kill_sb() will be called only once.

Therefore it's wrong to increment top_cgroup's refcnt when we find
an existing cgroup_root.

Try:
# mount -t cgroup -o cpuacct xxx /cgroup
# mount -t cgroup -o cpuacct xxx /cgroup2
# cat /proc/cgroups | grep cpuacct
cpuacct 2 1 1
# umount /cgroup
# umount /cgroup2
# cat /proc/cgroups | grep cpuacct
cpuacct 2 1 1

You'll see cgroupfs will never be freed.

v2: change to take the refcnt and drop it after kernfs_mount().
