devcg: prepare may_access() for hierarchy support
Currently may_access() is only able to verify if an exception is valid for the current cgroup, which has the same behavior. With hierarchy, it'll be also used to verify if a cgroup local exception is valid towards its cgroup parent, which might have different behavior. v2: - updated patch description - rebased on top of a new patch to expand the may_access() logic to make it more clear - fixed argument description order in may_access() Acked-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Acked-by: Serge Hallyn <serge.hallyn@canonical.com> Cc: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: Serge Hallyn <serge.hallyn@canonical.com> Signed-off-by: Aristeu Rozanski <aris@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>
