    Subject[PATCHSET] cgroup: cftype based file interface, take #2

    This is the second take at improving cgroup file addition/removal
    interface. Changes from the last take[L] are,

    * CGROUP_SUBSYS_CFTYPES[_COND]() dropped and
    cgroup_subsys->base_cftypes is added instead. This works better for
    subsystems implemented as module. tcp_memcontrol now uses an
    explicit __initcall() to register its cftypes.

    * 0005-cgroup-relocate-cftype-and-cgroup_subsys-definitions.patch
    added as cleanup.

    * 0007-memcg-always-create-memsw-files-if-CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM.patch
    added so that memsw files are always created if enabled in config as
    suggested by KAMEZAWA.

    This patch replaces cgroup file interface with cftype based one which
    allows dynamic additions and removals of cftype arrays whether the
    target subsystem is attached or not. This can be used to make subsys
    rebinding via remount work properly but I intentionally avoided doing
    that at the moment.

    This makes cgroup population simpler for controllers and will be used
    to allow controllers to be more dynamic. e.g. blkio subsys has
    sub-policies which may come and go while blkio subsys is attached and
    it currently uses fixed set of files which stays blank if not in use.
    This will also be useful for implementing unified hierarchy.

    This patchset contains the following patches.


    and is on top of

    cgroup/for-3.4 3ce3230a0cff484e5130153f244d4fb8a56b3a8b
    + [1] cgroup: deprecate remount option changes mount option

    and is also available in the following git branch.

    git:// cgroup-cftype

    Glauber, I think the cftypes registration for tcp_memcontrol is fine
    as is in this patchset and we just need to move the init to the tail
    of ->create(). Let's worry about memcg for module-loadable protocols
    whey they are added. Can you please send a patch to move init to

    If nobody objects && after Li comes back and acks the changes, I'll
    route these through cgroup/for-3.5.

    diffstat follows.
