SubjectRe: [PATCHSET cgroup/for-3.16] cgroup: implement unified hierarchy, v2
> This patchset finally implements the default unified hierarchy.  The
> goal is providing enough flexibility while enforcing stricter common
> structure where appropriate to address the above listed issues.
> Controllers which aren't bound to other hierarchies are
> automatically attached to the unified hierarchy, which is different in
> that controllers are enabled explicitly for each subtree.
> "cgroup.subtree_control" controls which controllers are enabled on the

Right after bootup:

# mount -t cgroup -o __DEVEL__sane_behavior xxx /mnt
# ls /mnt
cgroup.controllers cgroup.procs cgroup.sane_behavior cgroup.subtree_control
# cat /mnt/cgroup.controllers
cpuset cpu cpuacct memory devices freezer net_cls blkio perf_event hugetlb

I don't see any controller knobs...
