And piles up costs ? I think cgroup guys should pay attention to fork/exit
costs more. Now, it gets slower and slower.
In that point, I never like migrate-at-task-move work in cpuset and memcg.

My 1st objection to this patch is this "shared" doesn't mean "shared between
cgroup" but means "shared between processes".
I think it's of no use and no help to users.

And implementation is 2nd thing.
