We have some usecases which create and remove memcgs very frequently,
and the tasks in the memcg may just access the files which are unlikely
accessed by anyone else.  So, we prefer force_empty the memcg before
rmdir'ing it to reclaim the page cache so that they don't get
accumulated to incur unnecessary memory pressure.  Since the memory
pressure may incur direct reclaim to harm some latency sensitive
applications.

Force empty would help out such usecase, however force empty reclaims
memory synchronously when writing to memory.force_empty.  It may take
some time to return and the afterwards operations are blocked by it.
Although this can be done in background, some usecases may need create
new memcg with the same name right after the old one is deleted.  So,
the creation might get blocked by the before reclaim/remove operation.

Delaying memory reclaim in cgroup offline for such usecase sounds
reasonable.  Introduced a new interface, called wipe_on_offline for both
default and legacy hierarchy, which does memory reclaim in css offline
kworker.

Writing to 1 would enable it, writing 0 would disable it.
