Right.

Though alloc_css_id() is called by cgroup core in cgroup_create(),
free_css_id() should be called by subsystem itself.

This is a bit strange, but it's required by memory cgroup. Normally,
free_css_id() is called in destroy() handler, but memcg calls it
when a mem_cgroup's refcnt goes to 0. When a cgroup is destroyed,
the mem_cgroup won't be destroyed (refcnt > 0) if it has records on
swap-entry.
