It is probably worth documenting the default value for
memory.independent_kmem_limit?  I figure it would be zero at root and
and inherited from parents.  But I think the implementation differs.

I have no serious objection, but a full int seems like overkill for a
boolean value.

If you want to this function could be condensed down to:
  return cgroup_add_files(...);
