Oops, sorry, just read the patch :-)

I think the idea is reasonable - the only way that I could see it
breaking someone would be code that currently does something like:

mkdir A
mkdir B
echo 1 > A/mem_exclusive
echo 1 > B/mem_exclusive
echo $mems_for_a > A/mems
echo $mems_for_b > B/mems
The attempts to set the mem_exclusive flags would fail, since A and B
would both have all of the parent's mems.
