SubjectRe: [PATCH v4 2/2] cgroups: add a pids subsystem

This name is way too generic. Please make it clear it's part of a
cgroup controller.

Please make css the first element. The above prevents css <-> pids
pointer conversions from being noop.

Why are these long?

No need for explicit inlines.

For all the above functions.

Why would a child inherit the setting of the parent? It's already
hierarchically limited by the parent. There's no point in inheriting
the setting itself.

WARN_ON_ONCE() would be better. Also, if you're gonna warn against
underflow, why not warn about overflow? Just use
WARN_ON_ONCE(atomic_add_negative()).

Does pids limit make sense in the root cgroup?

Huh? So, the counter stays out of sync if unlimited? What happens
when it gets set to something else later?

Do we even need cancel call then?

Ugh... let's please not do negatives. Please input and output "max"
for no limit conditions.

So, on 32bit machines, we're assigning 64bit inte to 32bit after
ensuring the 64bit is a positive number?

Overall, I'm not too confident this is going well.

Thanks.
