For that use-case, do we really need to have the vfunc abstraction and
force all exporters to do something reasonable with it?

I think just storing the cgrpus gpu memory bucket this is charged against
and doing this in a generic way would be a lot better.

That way we can also easily add other neat features in the future, like
e.g. ttm could take care of charge-assignement automatically maybe, or we
could print the current cgroups charge relationship in the sysfs info
file. Or anything else really.

I do feel that in general for gpu memory cgroups to be useful, we should
really have memory pools as a fairly strong concept. Otherwise every
driver/allocator/thing is going to come up with their own, and very likely
incompatible interpretation. And we end up with a supposed generic cgroups
interface which cannot actually be used in a driver/vendor agnostic way at
all.
