Hm, does it mean that the problem always happens with the root cgroup?

>From the stacktrace provided by Peter it looks like that the problem
is bpf-related, but the original patch says nothing about it.

So from the test above it sounds like the problem is that we're trying
to release root's cgroup_bpf, which is a bad idea, I totally agree.
Is this the problem? If so, we might wanna fix it in a different way,
just checking if (!(css->flags & CSS_NO_REF)) in cgroup_bpf_put()
like in cgroup_put(). It feels more reliable to me.

Thanks!
