There are plans to prototype that and gradually move from cgroups v1
to v2 at least for some cgroup controllers (the ones that can use
unified hierarchy). Creating an additional per-process cgroup v2
hierarchy only for freezer would be a high price to pay today. In the
future when we migrate some controllers to v2 the price will be
amortized and we will probably be able to do that.
