Subject: [PATCHSET cgroup/for-3.8] netprio_cgroup: implement hierarchy support
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Friday 16th November 2012 19:20:16 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Hello, guys.

This patchset implements hierarchy support for netprio_cgroup.
netprio_cgroup along with netcls_cgroup is a rather weird in that it
really isn't about resource control.  It just hitches on cgroup as a
convenient mechanism to do stuff to groups of tasks.  The hierarchy
support reflects such nature.  There's no limit being imposed from
ancestors.  It simply propagates configuration downwards until there's
a node with its own config.  IOW, any given cgroup inherits priorities
from its parent for all netdevs which it doesn't have its own config
for.

As a parent isn't affected by child inheriting its config, the
hierarchy implementation is pretty simple.  It's enough to inherit
config from ->css_online() and propagate new config downwards from
write_priomap().  As each node needs to know which config is its local
one and which is inherited, an extra config array is added -
netprio_map->aux[].  It's a separate array to avoid disturbing spatial
locality of ->priomap[].  While it currently contains single one-bit
flag, I still made it a struct so that adding more configuration
(e.g. max_prio) is easy.

Note that this does change userland-visible behavior.  Now, nesting is
allowed and cgroups at the first level inherit priorities from the
root cgroup.  I can't think of any better way than just biting the
bullet here.  :(

 0001-cgroup-add-cgroup-id.patch
 0002-netprio-simplify-write_priomap.patch
 0003-netprio_cgroup-shorten-variable-names-in-extend_netd.patch
 0004-netprio_cgroup-reimplement-priomap-expansion.patch
 0005-netprio_cgroup-use-cgroup-id-instead-of-cgroup_netpr.patch
 0006-netprio_cgroup-implement-netprio-_set-_prio-helpers.patch
 0007-netprio_cgroup-keep-track-of-whether-prio-is-set-or-.patch
 0008-netprio_cgroup-implement-hierarchy-support.patch

0001 adds cgroup->id.  This will eventually replace css_id.

0002-0006 are prep patches.

0007 implements is_local flag which tracks whether a cgroup has its
own config or should inherit from its parent.

0008 implements hierarchy support.
