cgroup: skip refcnting on normal root csses and cgrp_dfl_root self css

9395a450 ("cgroup: enable refcnting for root csses") enabled
reference counting for root csses (cgroup_subsys_states) so that
cgroup's self csses can be used to manage the lifetime of the
containing cgroups.

Unfortunately, this change was incorrect.  During early init,
cgrp_dfl_root self css refcnt is used.  percpu_ref can't initialized
during early init and its initialization is deferred till
cgroup_init() time.  This means that cpu was using percpu_ref which
wasn't properly initialized.  Due to the way percpu variables are laid
out on x86, this didn't blow up immediately on x86 but ended up
incrementing and decrementing the percpu variable at offset zero,
whatever it may be; however, on other archs, this caused fault and
early boot failure.

As cgroup self csses for root cgroups of non-dfl hierarchies need
working refcounting, we can't revert 9395a450.  This patch adds
CSS_NO_REF which explicitly inhibits reference counting on the css and
sets it on all normal (non-self) csses and cgroup_dfl_root self css.

v2: cgrp_dfl_root.self is the offending one.  Set the flag on it.
