Will do.

Hmm yes on closer look it does seem like this is not straightforward.
I'll write a test that does this reparenting so I can start running
into the issue and poke for solutions. Off the top of my head, I think
maybe we can just not reparent the hugetlb reservations - the
hugetlb_cgroup stays alive until all its memory is uncharged. That
shouldn't be too bad. Today, I think memcg doesn't reparent memory
when it gets offlined.

I'll poke at this a bit and come back with suggestions, you may want
to hold off reviewing the rest of the patches until then.
