It's possible, but I don't think worth the trouble.

It would have to be done from rebind_subsystems(), as remount can add
more subsystems to an existing cgroup1 root. That in turn means we'd
have to have separate init paths for cgroup1 and cgroup2.

While we split cgroup1 and cgroup2 paths where necessary in the code,
it's a significant maintenance burden and a not unlikely source of
subtle errors (see the recent 'fix swap undercounting in cgroup2').

In this case, we're talking about a relatively small data structure
and the overhead is per mountpoint. Comparatively, we're allocating
the full vmstats structures for cgroup1 groups which barely use them,
and cgroup1 softlimit tree structures for each cgroup2 group.

So I don't think it's a good tradeoff. Subtle bugs that require kernel
patches are more disruptive to the user experience than the amount of
memory in question here.

Oh, I'm not removing the init call, I'm merely moving it from
cgroup_rstat_boot() to cgroup_setup_root().

The default root group has statically preallocated percpu data before
and after this patch. See cgroup.c:

static DEFINE_PER_CPU(struct cgroup_rstat_cpu, cgrp_dfl_root_rstat_cpu);

/* the default hierarchy */
struct cgroup_root cgrp_dfl_root = { .cgrp.rstat_cpu = &cgrp_dfl_root_rstat_cpu };
EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(cgrp_dfl_root);
