I'm not familiar with the layout of KVM/SEV compile targets but wouldn't
it be simpler to exclude whole svm/sev.c when !CONFIG_KVM_AMD_SEV?

When is this function supposed to be called? At boot only or is this
meant for some kind of hot unplug functionality too?

I'm not sure the user of this resource accounting will always be able to
interpret EBUSY returned from depths of the subsystem.
See what's done in pids controller in order to give some useful
information about why operation failed.

1) Use the /* comment */ style.
2) You pin the whole path from task_cg up to root (on the first charge).
That's unnecessary since children reference their parents.
Also why do you get the reference only for the first charger? While it
may work, it seems too convoluted to me.
It'd be worth documenting what the caller can expect wrt to ref count of
the returned misc_cg.

Thanks,
