Subject: [PATCH v2] cls_cgroup: Fix rcu lockdep warning

Dave reported an rcu lockdep warning on 2.6.35.4 kernel

task->cgroups and task->cgroups->subsys[i] are protected by RCU.
So we avoid accessing invalid pointers here. This might happen,
for example, when you are deref-ing those pointers while someone
move @task from one cgroup to another.
