Subject[PATCH 6/8] cgroups: pull up res counter charge failure interpretation to caller
Date
res_counter_charge() always returns -ENOMEM when the limit is reached and
the charge thus can't happen.

However it's up to the caller to interpret this failure and return the
appropriate error value. The task counter subsystem will need to report
the user that a fork() has been cancelled because of some limit reached,
not because we are too short on memory.

Fix this by returning -1 when res_counter_charge() fails.
