    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().
