Subject: [RFC] [PATCH v2 0/2] cgroups: implement moving a threadgroup's
 threads atomically with cgroup.procs

This patch series is a revision of and .

The rwsem in the fork path has been moved to signal_struct to simplify
the locking code in the cgroup_attach_proc side. This depends on Oleg's
recentish changes to signal_struct's lifetime rules (which don't seem to
appear when I check out mmotm with git clone, so I wasn't able to do any
more than basic testing).

There is still a race with exec in the case where the threadgroup leader
changes. To solve this, this implementation checks if the race occurred
after all previous set-up has been done and all necessary locks are
held, and if so, returns -EAGAIN which is handled by the calling
function by looping until a different value is returned.
