But we should be limiting the child group based on parent's limit only
when hierarchy is set right ?

It should behave similar to memcg. ie, if hierarchy is set, then we limit
using MIN(parent's limit, child's limit). May be I am missing some of
the details of memcg use_hierarchy config. My goal was to keep it
similar to memcg. Can you explain why do you think the patch would
make it any different ?
