Thank you for letting me now about your view of this that early.

Yes, indeed.

Well, there is a cost, but all past submissions included round trip
benchmarks.
In none of them I could see any significant slowdown.

What exactly do you mean by "not in use" ? Not compiled in or not
actively being exercised ? If you mean the later, I appreciate tips on
how to achieve it.

Also, I kind of dispute the affirmation that !cgroup will encompass
the majority of users, since cgroups is being enabled by default by
most vendors. All systemd based systems use it extensively, for instance.
