SubjectRe: [PATCHSET cgroup/for-3.8] cpuset: decouple cpuset locking from cgroup core

I reverted 38d7bee9d24adf4c95676a3dc902827c72930ebb ("cpuset: use N_MEMORY instead N_HIGH_MEMORY")
and applied this patchset against 3.8-rc1.

I created a cpuset which has cpuset.cpus=1, and I forked a few cpu-hog tasks
and moved them to this cpuset, and the final operations was offlining cpu1.
It stucked.

The only processes in D state are kworker threads:

After a while. dmesg:

I did the same thing without this patchset, and everthing's fine.
