Subject[1/2] memrlimit handle attach_task() failure, add can_attach() callback


This patch fixes a task migration problem reported by Kamezawa-San. This
patch should fix all issues with migraiton, except for a rare condition
documented in memrlimit_cgroup_move_task(). To fix that problem, we
would need to add transaction properties to cgroups.

The problem reported was that migrating to a group that did not have
sufficient limits to accept an incoming task caused a kernel warning.

Steps to reproduce

% mkdir /dev/cgroup/memrlimit/group_01
% mkdir /dev/cgroup/memrlimit/group_02
% echo 1G > /dev/cgroup/memrlimit/group_01/memrlimit.limit_in_bytes
% echo 0 > /dev/cgroup/memrlimit/group_02/memrlimit.limit_in_bytes
% echo $$ > /dev/cgroup/memrlimit/group_01/tasks
% echo $$ > /dev/cgroup/memrlimit/group_02/tasks
% exit

memrlimit does the right thing by not moving the charges to group_02,
but the task is still put into g2 (since we did not use can_attach to
fail migration). Once in g2, when we echo the task to the root cgroup,
it tries to uncharge the cost of the task from g2. g2 does not have
any charge associated with the task, hence we get a warning.
