    Pull cgroup updates from Tejun Heo:
     "cgroup changes for v4.6-rc1.  No userland visible behavior changes in
      this pull request.  I'll send out a separate pull request for the
      addition of cgroup namespace support.
    
       - The biggest change is the revamping of cgroup core task migration
         and controller handling logic.  There are quite a few places where
         controllers and tasks are manipulated.  Previously, many of those
         places implemented custom operations for each specific use case
         assuming specific starting conditions.  While this worked, it makes
         the code fragile and difficult to follow.
    
         The bulk of this pull request restructures these operations so that
         most related operations are performed through common helpers which
         implement recursive (subtrees are always processed consistently)
         and idempotent (they make cgroup hierarchy converge to the target
         state rather than performing operations assuming specific starting
         conditions).  This makes the code a lot easier to understand,
         verify and extend.
    
       - Implicit controller support is added.  This is primarily for using
         perf_event on the v2 hierarchy so that perf can match cgroup v2
         path without requiring the user to do anything special.  The kernel
         portion of perf_event changes is acked but userland changes are
         still pending review.
    
       - cgroup_no_v1= boot parameter added to ease testing cgroup v2 in
         certain environments.
    
       - There is a regression introduced during v4.4 devel cycle where
         attempts to migrate zombie tasks can mess up internal object
         management.  This was fixed earlier this week and included in this
         pull request w/ stable cc'd.
    
       - Misc non-critical fixes and improvements"
