I want to establish the new hierarchy when a new process is forked and
not for new threads, therefore the check for CLONE_THREAD in
copy_process(). I do the reparenting with reparent_acct() when a process
dies, therefore the check for "group_dead" in exit_signal().

So you want to have the following three patches:
* Introduce "struct cdata" + __account_ctime() (no functional change)
* Add cdata_acct accounting + parallel accounting hierarchy
* Add taskstats interface to export the data to userspace
