Can't we initialize ->name of root cgroup to "/" and lose the
conditional? We can lose the wrapper altogether but if you're worried
that sparse check isn't enough, we can have trivial inline wrapper,
but in that case it probably would help to rename cgrp->name to, say,
cgrp->__name and put a comment directing people to the accessing
wrapper which should probably return const char *.
