Subject[RFC] [PATCH v3 1/2] cgroups: read-write lock CLONE_THREAD forking per threadgroup
Adds functionality to read/write lock CLONE_THREAD fork()ing per-threadgroup

From: Ben Blum <bblum@andrew.cmu.edu>

This patch adds an rwsem that lives in a threadgroup's signal_struct that's
taken for reading in the fork path, under CONFIG_CGROUPS. If another part of
the kernel later wants to use such a locking mechanism, the CONFIG_CGROUPS
ifdefs should be changed to a higher-up flag that CGROUPS and the other system
would both depend on.

This is a pre-patch for cgroups-procs-write.patch.

Signed-off-by: Ben Blum <bblum@andrew.cmu.edu>
