cgroup: leave cg_list valid upon cgroup_exit

A thread/process in cgroup_attach_task() could have called
list_del(&tsk->cg_list) after cgroup_exit() had already called
list_del() on the same list. Since it only checked for
!list_empty(&tsk->cg_list) before doing this, the list_del()
call would thus be made twice.

The solution is to leave tsk->cg_list in a valid state in
cgroup_exit() with list_del_init(&tsk->cg_list), which leaves
an empty list.
