cgroup: protect modifications to cgroup_idr with cgroup_mutex

Setup cgroupfs like this:
  # mount -t cgroup -o cpuacct xxx /cgroup
  # mkdir /cgroup/sub1
  # mkdir /cgroup/sub2

Then run these two commands:
  # for ((; ;)) { mkdir /cgroup/sub1/tmp && rmdir /mnt/sub1/tmp; } &
  # for ((; ;)) { mkdir /cgroup/sub2/tmp && rmdir /mnt/sub2/tmp; } &

After seconds you may see this warning:

It's because allocating/removing cgroup ID is not properly synchronized.

The bug was introduced when we converted cgroup_ida to cgroup_idr.
While synchronization is already done inside ida_simple_{get,remove}(),
users are responsible for concurrent calls to idr_{alloc,remove}().

tj: Refreshed on top of b58c8998 ("cgroup: fix error return from
cgroup_create()").

Fixes: 4e96ee8e
