Can't this be just:

void res_counter_inherit(struct res_counter *counter, int member) {
struct res_counter *parent;
parent = counter->parent;
if (parent)
res_counter_write_u64(counter, member,
res_counter_read_u64(parent, member));

This is just used at cgroup creation time, right? So the performance
impact of an extra cli/sti shouldn't matter.

Also, looking at the code res_counter_read_u64() appears to not do any
locking. I don't recall why I added it like that, but it probably
ought to do at least an atomic64_read().
