cgroups: fix API thinko

Add cgroup_attach_task_all()

The existing cgroup_attach_task_current_cg() API is called by a thread to
attach another thread to all of its cgroups; this is unsuitable for cases
where a privileged task wants to attach itself to the cgroups of a less
privileged one, since the call must be made from the context of the target
task.

This patch adds a more generic cgroup_attach_task_all() API that allows
both the source task and to-be-moved task to be specified.
cgroup_attach_task_current_cg() becomes a specialization of the more
generic new function.
