SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC cgroup/for-3.7] cgroup: mark subsystems with broken hierarchy support and whine if cgroups are nested for them
Hello, Glauber.

Yeah, it's mostly that cfq was already a hairy monster before blkcg
was added to it and unfortunately we didn't make it any cleaner in the
process and blkcg itself has a lot of other issues including being
completely broken w.r.t. writeback writes. In addition there are two
sub-controllers - the cfq one and blk-throttle. So, it's just that
there are too many scary things to do and not enough man power or
maybe interest. I hope we could just declare cgroup isn't supported
on block devices but that doesn't seem feasible at this point either.

I might / probably work on it and am hoping to coerce Vivek into it
too. If you wanna jump in, please be my guest.
