Please don't do that. I am not sure we have thought the cgroup interface through
(looking at all the discussions). IMHO, it would be better for us to get a simpler
interface (prctl) right and then once we learn the lessons using it, apply it for
the cgroup interface. I think we all agree we don't want to maintain a messy interface
forever.
