Hmm, so in general I would love to use a numeric identifier instead of a string.

I did some reading, and it looks like the cgroup_ino() mainly has to
do with writeback, instead of being just a general identifier?
https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/cgroup-v2.txt

There is cgroup_id() which I think is almost what I'd want, but there
are a couple problems with it:

- I don't know of a way for userspace to translate IDs -> paths, to
make them human readable?
- Also I think the ID implementation we use for this is "dense",
meaning if a cgroup is removed, its ID is likely to be quickly reused.

Ah, I added this because it also shows up in linux-next, under the
next-20201130 tag. I'll remove it in v2, squashing is fine. :)
