Maybe it doesn't add any overhead but it just breaks the cgroups
expectation that the root cgroup covers the full resource set. No cgroup
controller allows to set limits on the root cgroup. So all this looks
like an abuse of the interface.

I haven't read the full series yet but this particular change looks like
a nogo to me.
