Subject[RFC/RFT PATCH] cgroup: enable write permission for the group of users
Date
Hello,

Working in a development that uses control groups and libcgroup, I have found
that the files in control groups directories need write permission for the
group of users also.

In example,
here is an excerpt of the configuration of libcgroup, from file
"/etc/cgconfig.conf"
******** BEGIN OF EXCERPT
group realtime {
perm {
task {
uid = root;
gid = audio;
}
admin {
uid = root;
gid = jobadmin;
}
}
cpu {
cpu.policy = 1;
cpu.shares = 800;
cpu.rt_runtime_us = 900000;
}
memory {
memory.swappiness = 10;
}
}
group usr {
....
}

# batch processes
group usr/batch {
perm {
task {
uid = root;
gid = users;
}
admin {
uid = root;
gid = jobadmin;
}
}
cpu {
cpu.policy = 3;
cpu.shares = 400;
}
memory {
memory.swappiness = 60;
}
}
******* END OF EXCERPT

In cgroup "realtime" We obtain from this configuration that the user "root" is
the owner of the cgroup's files, the admins are users in the "jobadmin" group
and the users are the "audio" group.
the users that are members of group audio must have write permission to the
tasks file to add jobs to this cgroup. And the members of group jobadmin need
write permission to the cgroup control files.

Here is attached a near trivial patch to enable it.
