Subject[PATCH 0/7] cgroups: New max number of tasks subsystem (was: cgroups rlim subsystem)
Date
Hi all,

Changes in this release are:

* switch from general rlim subsystem to self-contained max number of tasks
subsystem

* Don't use subsys->fork() callback but a static call to avoid cgroups
complications.

* When moving a task accross cgroups, don't charge/uncharge the common
ancestors, to fix race against concurrent forks.
To fix that, Paul proposed a res_counter_move_charge() that do
all in once. But we need to be able to cancel the attachment in case
a following subsystem refuses the attachment itself. Thus the charge
and uncharge still need to be seperate. More specifically, we can
only uncharge the old cgroup once we are sure of the attachment. Because
we can't cancel that uncharge later due to possible forks in the middle.

Thanks.
