A cgroup containing only dying tasks will be seen as empty when a userspace
process reads its cgroup.procs or cgroup.tasks files. It should be safe to
delete such a cgroup as it is considered empty. However if one of the dying
tasks did not reach cgroup_exit then an attempt to delete the cgroup will
fail with EBUSY because cgroup_is_populated() will not consider it empty
until all tasks reach cgroup_exit. Such a condition can be triggered when
a task consumes large amounts of memory and spends enough time in exit_mm
to create delay between the moment it is flagged as PF_EXITING and the
moment it reaches cgroup_exit.
Fix this by detecting cgroups containing only dying tasks during cgroup
destruction and proceeding with it while postponing the final step of
releasing the last reference until the last task reaches cgroup_exit.
