It's res_counter_resize_limit from your patch, sorry for the confusion.

I meant, that we have to add 4 bytes (8 on 64-bit arches) on the
struct res_counter to store the pointer on the res_counter_ops.

It is, but my point is - we're calling the set_limit (this is a
res_counter_resize_limit from your patch, sorry for the confusion again)
routine right from the cgroup's write callback and thus can call
the desired "ops->shrink_usage" directly, w/o additional level of
indirection.
