TJ, is css_offline guaranteed to be called in hierarchical order? I
got properly lost in the whole cgroup destroy code. There's endless
workqueues and rcu callbacks there.
So the current place in free_fair_sched_group() is far too late to be
calling remove_entity_load_avg(). But I'm not sure where I should put
it, it needs to be in a place where we know the group is going to die
but its parent is guaranteed to still exist.
Would offline be that place?
