blkcg: rename subsystem name from blkio to io

blkio interface has become messy over time and is currently the
largest.  In addition to the inconsistent naming scheme, it has
multiple stat files which report more or less the same thing, a number
of debug stat files which expose internal details which shouldn't have
been part of the public interface in the first place, recursive and
non-recursive stats and leaf and non-leaf knobs.

Both recursive vs. non-recursive and leaf vs. non-leaf distinctions
don't make any sense on the unified hierarchy as only leaf cgroups can
contain processes.  cgroups is going through a major interface
revision with the unified hierarchy involving significant fundamental
usage changes and given that a significant portion of the interface
doesn't make sense anymore, it's a good time to reorganize the

As the first step, this patch renames the external visible subsystem
name from "blkio" to "io".  This is more concise, matches the other
two major subsystem names, "cpu" and "memory", and better suited as
blkcg will be involved in anything writeback related too whether an
actual block device is involved or not.

As the subsystem legacy_name is set to "blkio", the only userland
visible change outside the unified hierarchy is that blkcg is reported
as "io" instead of "blkio" in the subsystem initialized message during
boot.  On the unified hierarchy, blkcg now appears as "io".
