4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Waiman Long <longman@redhat.com>

commit 33c35aa4817864e056fd772230b0c6b552e36ea2 upstream.

The kill_css() function may be called more than once under the condition
that the css was killed but not physically removed yet followed by the
removal of the cgroup that is hosting the css. This patch prevents any
harmm from being done when that happens.
