The point would be to avoid situations where a user has code that
creates a group directory called "foo", and then in a future kernel
release cgroups introduces a control file called "foo". If it's
prefixed, then the user just has to avoid creating groups prefixed by
"cgroup." or any subsystem name, so collisions will be less likely.
