I touch cgroup.h quite frequently, so I'd like to reduce the compile time caused
by cgroup.h changes, so I've made a few patches to remove cgroup.h from some
header files.

It's better to expose as less interfaces as possible, and if someone wants to
export someting he should think about if it's the right thing to do.

Like we often make static functions usable to external users, and also often do the
reverse thing, this patch is nothing special.
