clone_children is only meaningful for cpuset and will stay that way. Rename the flag to reflect that and update documentation. Also, drop clone_children() wrapper in cgroup.c. The thin wrapper is used only a few times and one of them will go away soon. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Acked-by: Serge E.

1.5 What does clone_children do ?
-If the clone_children flag is enabled (1) in a cgroup, then all
-cgroups created beneath will call the post_clone callbacks for each
-subsystem of the newly created cgroup. Usually when this callback is
-implemented for a subsystem, it copies the values of the parent
-subsystem, this is the case for the cpuset.
+This flag only affects the cpuset controller. If the clone_children
+flag is enabled (1) in a cgroup, a new cpuset cgroup will copy its
+configuration from the parent during initialization.
1.6 How do I use cgroups ?
