SubjectRe: [RFD] Merge task counter into memcg

I personally think this is namespaces business, not cgroups.
If you have a process namespace, an interface that works to limit the
number of processes should keep working given the constraints you are
given.

What doesn't make sense, is to create a *new* interface to limit
something that doesn't really need to be limited, just because you
limited a similar resource before.
