Since the pid/tgid of the process doesn't change in step_3, it
allocates from original cgroup of step_1.

However in next patch V2, as described below, since IB resource will
store rdma_cg pointer,
in step_3, new resource will be allocated from new cgroup.
old resource will be freed from older cgroup.
This is what you are expecting, right?
