Lennart, Kay, what do you guys think? FWIW I'm all for ripping the orthogonal hierarchy crap out, I hate it just about as much as you do judging from your write-up. Yes it will make some people unhappy, but I can live with that since my life will be easier.. :-) I'm not sure on your process hierarchy pie though, I rather like being able to assign tasks to cgroups of my making without having to mirror that in the process hierarchy. Having seen what userspace does (libvirt in particular, I've still managed to not get infected by the systemd crap) its utterly and completely insane. Now I don't think any of my machines actually still have libvirt on it, so I don't care if we break that either ;-) Another thing I dislike about all the cgroup crap is all the dozens of tiny controllers being proposed left right and center. Like WTF isn't the hugetlb controller part of memcg? Its all memory, right? Now I appreciate all this is new and exciting and Linux does the evolutionary development thing so its bound to be a mess sometimes, but shees.. So +1 on just ripping everything apart and trying again.
