Hi Gui,

Determining if there are any children present or not from cgroup sounds like
a good idea. Just that cost of the operation now has increased. I am not
sure how significant that is. But for the time being we can stick to your
implementation. 

One question inline below.

Do we need some kind of locking here to make sure cgroup->children list is not
being modified?

Thanks
