Because it's not a write actually, this is just some kick-up which came
from the user space. And the fact, that it is triggered via the sys_write
is just a VFS-based API constraints. Besides, if we ever have a binary 
API with cgroups, this trigger can be triggered :) via some other system
call, rather than write.
