While the functionality sounds useful, the interface (passing an inode
number) feels a bit ugly to me. Also, if that group is deleted and a
new cgroup created, you could end up reusing the inode number.

How about an approach where you write either the cgroup path (relative
to the memcg mount) or an fd open on the desired cgroup? Then you
could store a (counted) css reference rather than an inode number,
which would make the filter function cleaner too, since it would just
need to compare css objects.
