Lemme see if I've got it right, do you mean that we can:

 1) write the _string_ "max" into a cgroup attribute to:

    - set    0 for util_max, since it's a protection
    - set 1024 for util_min, since it's a limit

 2) write the _string_ "0" into a cgroup attribute to:

    - set 1024 for util_max, since it's a protection
    - set    0 for util_min, since it's a limit

Is that correct or it's just me totally confused?
