I'd really appreciated if you explain how it's fixed.

Ummm... I can't say I like it. It tries to work around the problem
that the backing subsys may go away earlier by changing how the
subsystems are iterated so that the "gone" subsystems can be iterated,
which really doesn't seem like a good diea. I mean, what if somebody
tries to access the files inbetween? root_cgrp->subsys[] would be
%NULL and segfault all the same.

So, how about performing cgroup_clear_directory() *before*
rebind_subsystems() and then restore it afterwards?

Thanks.
