    I don't know. hugetlbfs already is this franken thing which is
    separate from the usual memory management. It needing cgroup type
    resource limitation feels a bit weird to me. Isn't this supposed to
    be used in more-or-less tightly controlled setups? The whole thing
    needs to have its memory cut out from boot after all.

    If someone really has to add cgroup support to hugetlbfs, I'm more
    inclined to say let them play in their own corner unless incorporating
    it into memcg makes it inherently better.

    That said, I really don't know that much about mm. Johannes, Michal,
    what do you guys think?
