Subject: [RFC][PATCH 8/8] cgroups: force all struct cftype const

As found in PaX, mark struct cftype with __do_const and add helpers
to deal with rare writes. This is a more complex example of a write-rarely
structure, which needs to use list helpers and blocks of enable/disable
pairs to perform the needed updates.
