I mean at all of the places at which init_peercred() occurs.

Then you haven't been following the discussion.

The client's credentials at sendmsg()/write() time are "DO NOT CARE".

You cannot even guarentee the semantics in the logging example if
you ask for these "client identity at sendmsg() time" semantics.

What if the event occured when the client was in cgroup1, and the
log message goes out after it has been moved into cgroup2?

That is just proof that this whole idea is fundamentally flawed.

You guys need to come up with something else to achieve your goals,
this isn't it.
