[PATCH 03/12] cgroup: implement cgroup_add_cftypes() and friends

Tejun Heo tj at kernel.org
Wed Mar 21 22:17:36 UTC 2012


Currently, cgroup directories are populated by subsys->populate()
callback explicitly creating files on each cgroup creation.  This
level of flexibility isn't needed or desirable.  It provides largely
unused flexibility which call for abuses while severely limiting what
the core layer can do through the lack of structure and conventions.

Per each cgroup file type, the only distinction that cgroup users is
making is whether a cgroup is root or not, which can easily be
expressed with flags.

This patch introduces cgroup_add_cftypes().  These deal with cftypes
instead of individual files - controllers indicate that certain types
of files exist for certain subsystem.  Newly added CFTYPE_*_ON_ROOT
flags indicate whether a cftype should be excluded or created only on
the root cgroup.

cgroup_add_cftypes() can be called any time whether the target
subsystem is currently attached or not.  cgroup core will create files
on the existing cgroups as necessary.

Also, cgroup_subsys->base_cftypes is added to ease registration of the
base files for the subsystem.  If non-NULL on subsys init, the cftypes
pointed to by ->base_cftypes are automatically registered on subsys
init / load.

Further patches will convert the existing users and remove the file
based interface.  Note that this interface allows dynamic addition of
files to an active controller.  This will be used for sub-controller
modularity and unified hierarchy in the longer term.

This patch implements the new mechanism but doesn't apply it to any
user.

v2: replaced DECLARE_CGROUP_CFTYPES[_COND]() with
    cgroup_subsys->base_cftypes, which works better for cgroup_subsys
    which is loaded as module.
