Subject: [PATCH 3/3] cgroup: remove CGRP_RELEASABLE flag

We call put_css_set() after setting CGRP_RELEASABLE flag in
cgroup_task_migrate(), but in other places we call it without setting
the flag. I don't see the necessity of this flag.

Moreover once the flag is set, it will never be cleared, unless writing
to the notify_on_release control file, so it can be quite confusing
if we look at the output of debug.releasable.

  # mount -t cgroup -o debug xxx /cgroup
  # mkdir /cgroup/child
  # cat /cgroup/child/debug.releasable
  0   <-- shows 0 though the cgroup is empty
  # echo $$ > /cgroup/child/tasks
  # cat /cgroup/child/debug.releasable
  0
  # echo $$ > /cgroup/tasks && echo $$ > /cgroup/child/tasks
  # cat /proc/child/debug.releasable
  1   <-- shows 1 though the cgroup is not empty

This patch removes the flag, and now debug.releasable shows if the
cgroup is empty or not.
