Subject[PATCH 05/12] cgroups: Ability to stop res charge propagation on bounded ancestor
Date
Moving a task from a cgroup to another may require to substract
its resource charge from the old cgroup and add it to the new one.

For this to happen, the uncharge/charge propagation can just stop
when we reach the common ancestor for the two cgroups. Further
the performance reasons, we also want to avoid to temporarily
overload the common ancestors with a non-accurate resource
counter usage if we charge first the new cgroup and uncharge the
old one thereafter. This is going to be a requirement for the coming
max number of task subsystem.

To solve this, provide a pair of new API that can charge/uncharge
a resource counter until we reach a given ancestor.
