Oh well... I personally do not think this is what we want... Can't
we just add the stupid rcu_sync_enter() into cgroup_init() at least
for now? Yes, this means the unnecessary .sync() at boot time, but
it will go away after cleanups I am going to send.

Because, again, we will probably want to change this bias dynamically.
