Do you really think it is cleaner?

Why would I define empty something that is not empty at all?
Look again. Most of those helpers would be the exact same with or
without CONFIG_CGROUP_KMEM . The others, very few differences. If
CONFIG_INET bothers you, I can remove it altogether, making it
unconditional. But moving it inside CONFIG_CGROUP_KMEM makes no sense.
