Subject: [PATCH 00/10] cgroups: Task counter subsystem v6
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 3rd October 2011 19:07:02 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Hi Andrew,

This contains minor changes, mostly documentation and changelog
updates, off-case build fix, and a code optimization in
res_counter_common_ancestor().

It's hard to put some statistic numbers while testing this feature
given that the result is rather binary: we launch a forkbomb and
either we stop and kill it or the system become unresponsive.
    
Meanwhile, one can find a testsuite at this address:
https://tglx.de/~fweisbec/task_counter_test.tar.gz
    
It performs several checks to ensure the interface and the behaviour
are reliable after common events like moving tasks around over cgroups
in a hierarchy, forking inside, etc.. It also launches a forkbomb,
tries to stop and kill it. So beware, don't run it on a system that
is doing serious things. Ensure you have CGROUP_TASK_COUNTER set
before, or it may compress the Ten Plagues in your MBR and
inflate the whole after your next reboot.

Changes in v6:

- Update res_counter_common_ancestor() to be O(n+m) instead of O(n*m),
patch from Kirill A. Shutemov (6/10)
- Refine documentation and changelog to better explain the claims and
goals of this subsystem (10/10)
- Fix !CONFIG_CGROUPS build crash (10/10)
- Step over the temporary state that used an ad-hoc fork hook.

Frederic Weisbecker (9):
  cgroups: Add res_counter_write_u64() API
  cgroups: New resource counter inheritance API
  cgroups: Add previous cgroup in can_attach_task/attach_task callbacks
  cgroups: New cancel_attach_task subsystem callback
  cgroups: Ability to stop res charge propagation on bounded ancestor
  res_counter: Allow charge failure pointer to be null
  cgroups: Pull up res counter charge failure interpretation to caller
  cgroups: Allow subsystems to cancel a fork
  cgroups: Add a task counter subsystem
