    The general idea of passing consistent information to all *attach
    methods seems good, but isn't it simpler to just fix up the various
    method signatures?

    The whole point of having *attach() and *attach_task() was to minimize
    the amount of boilerplate (in this case, iterating across a new
    cgroup_taskset abstraction) in the subsystems, leaving that to the
    cgroups framework.
