Hmm, I had to look at "cgroup_freezer: implement proper hierarchy
support" to actually understand what is the callback good for. The above
sounds as if the callback is needed when a controller wants to use
the new iterators or when pre_destroy is defined.

I think it would be helpful if the changelog described that the callback
is needed when the controller keeps a mutable shared state for the
hierarchy. For example memory controller doesn't have any such a strict
requirement so we can safely use your new iterators without pre_destroy.

Anyway, I like this change because the shared state is now really easy
to implement.
