Subject[PATCH 10/10] docs: cgroup-v1: use numbered lists for user interface setup
Date
Setup instructions for memory resource controller UI uses a mix of
section headings and normal paragraphs, whereas numbered lists are
better fit for this purpose.

While at it, also slightly reword the instructions and add reference to
"Why are cgroups needed?" in the main cgroups documentation.
