I think so - the slight problem with this new flag is that it's
possible for the root cgroup to have one setting for clone_children
and all its children to have a different setting. But I guess we can
live with that. (Or maybe simply not make the default clone_children
value a mount option, but require it to be set on the root cgroup
after mounting?)
