cgroup: introduce cancel_attach()
Daisuke Nishimura [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:03 +0000 (15:22 -0800)]
Add cancel_attach() operation to struct cgroup_subsys.  cancel_attach()
can be used when can_attach() operation prepares something for the subsys,
but we should rollback what can_attach() operation has prepared if attach
task fails after we've succeeded in can_attach().
