[PATCH 0/2] CGroups: cgroup member list enhancement/fix

The following series (written by Ben Blum) adds a "cgroup.procs" file
to each cgroup that reports unique tgids rather than pids, and fixes a
pid namespace bug in the existing "tasks" file that could cause
readers in different namespaces to interfere with one another.

The patches as a pair provide similar functionality to Li Zefan's
patch posted yesterday, with the addition on the "cgroup.procs" file;
if it's decided that Li's patch needs to be fast-tracked to 2.6.31,
then these patches can be rebased as a small extension of Li's patch;
if Li'z patch doesn't need to go to 2.6.31 then it makes more sense to
take this pair since they provide more overall functionality.


Ben Blum (2):
      Adds a read-only "procs" file similar to "tasks" that shows only unique tgids
      Ensures correct concurrent opening/reading of pidlists across pid namespaces
