[PATCHSET] perf, cgroup: implement hierarchy support for perf_event controller

perf_event cgroup controller is one of the remaining few with broken
hierarchy support.  It turns out it's pretty easy to implement - the
only thing necessary is making perf_cgroup_match() return %true also
when the cgroup of the current task is a descendant of the event's
cgroup.  This patchset implements cgroup_is_descendant() and uses it
to implement hierarchy support in perf_event controller.

This patchset contains the following three patches.


The patches are also available in the following git branch, which is
based on top of cgroup/for-3.10.  It's currently based on top of
cgroup/for-3.10 as the first patch causes non-trivial conflict with it
otherwise, which is not difficult to resolve but still nice to avoid

Li, Michal, I picked the first two patches from Li's memcg patchset.
Can we push the first two through cgroup/for-3.10 and put the rest in

Ingo, how should these be routed?
