SubjectRe: [RFC][PATCH 5/5] Add a Signal Control Group Subsystem

The name "kill" seems ambiguous to me. It suggests that any write
will send some default signal (TERM or KILL?) to all tasks in the
cgroup, rather like the 'killall' command.

I'm guessing that more people, on seeing this file in a cgroup
directory, will guess correctly what it does if it were named
"signal" or "send_signal" or some such.

I won't rest till it's the best ...
