    Had a quick look at your patch set. No, it does not seem to meet my
    requirements. It limits the number of processes in a cgroup - that is
    also very useful, but is different from my controller.

    My controller limits the number of fork() calls, not the number of
    processes running at a time.

    I've been using it for 7 years to put an upper bound on CGI resource
    usage in a shared hosting environment at my employer (initially based
    on a proprietary cgroup-like subsystem I wrote, when cgroups were not
    available yet).
