cgroups: fix a css_set not found bug in cgroup_attach_proc

commit e0197aae59e55c06db172bfbe1a1cdb8c0e1cab3 upstream.

There is a BUG when migrating a PF_EXITING proc. Since css_set_prefetch()
is not called for the PF_EXITING case, find_existing_css_set() will return
NULL inside cgroup_task_migrate() causing a BUG.

This bug is easy to reproduce. Create a zombie and echo its pid to
cgroup.procs.

$ cat zombie.c
\#include <unistd.h>

int main()
{
  if (fork())
      pause();
  return 0;
}
$

We are hitting this bug pretty regularly on ChromeOS.

This bug is already fixed by Tejun Heo's cgroup patchset which is
targetted for the next merge window:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/11/1/356

I've create a smaller patch here which just fixes this bug so that a
fix can be merged into the current release and stable.
