[PATCH 0/9] [RFC] CGroup Hierarchy Extensions

Wed Jul 1 19:10:52 PDT 2009

The following series adds support for:

- named cgroup hierarchies
- cgroup hierarchies with no bound subsystems
- cgroup subsystems that can be bound to multiple hierarchies

This allows more flexibility when constructing/mounting cgroups
hierarchies, and allows functionality that's not tied to specific
external resources to be made available on multiple cgroups
hierarchies rather than just one.

A few simple example cgroups subsystems that are multi-bindable are
included in the patch series.
