sched/cgroup: Move sched_online_group() back into css_online() to fix crash

Commit:

  2f5177f0

 ("sched/cgroup: Fix/cleanup cgroup teardown/init")

.. moved sched_online_group() from css_online() to css_alloc().
It exposes half-baked task group into global lists before initializing
generic cgroup stuff.

LTP testcase (third in cgroup_regression_test) written for testing
similar race in kernels 2.6.26-2.6.28 easily triggers this oops:

  BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000008

Here the task group is already linked into the global RCU-protected 'task_groups'
list, but the css->cgroup pointer is still NULL.

This patch reverts this chunk and moves online back to css_online().
