Argh, so this is about the total trainwreck you have for hierarchy
semantics (which you've basically inherited from the RT bits I guess,
which are similarly broken).

Do you want to support per-cgroup throttle periods? If so we need to sit
down and work this out, if not the above should not be possible because
each cgroup can basically run from the same refresh timer and everybody
will get throttled at the same time.
