Merge branch 'for-4.5' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/cgroup
Pull cgroup updates from Tejun Heo: - cgroup v2 interface is now official. It's no longer hidden behind a devel flag and can be mounted using the new cgroup2 fs type. Unfortunately, cpu v2 interface hasn't made it yet due to the discussion around in-process hierarchical resource distribution and only memory and io controllers can be used on the v2 interface at the moment. - The existing documentation which has always been a bit of mess is relocated under Documentation/cgroup-v1/. Documentation/cgroup-v2.txt is added as the authoritative documentation for the v2 interface. - Some features are added through for-4.5-ancestor-test branch to enable netfilter xt_cgroup match to use cgroup v2 paths. The actual netfilter changes will be merged through the net tree which pulled in the said branch. - Various cleanups * 'for-4.5' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/cgroup: cgroup: rename cgroup documentations cgroup: fix a typo. cgroup: Remove resource_counter.txt in Documentation/cgroup-legacy/00-INDEX. cgroup: demote subsystem init messages to KERN_DEBUG cgroup: Fix uninitialized variable warning cgroup: put controller Kconfig options in meaningful order cgroup: clean up the kernel configuration menu nomenclature cgroup_pids: fix a typo. Subject: cgroup: Fix incomplete dd command in blkio documentation cgroup: kill cgrp_ss_priv[CGROUP_CANFORK_COUNT] and friends cpuset: Replace all instances of time_t with time64_t cgroup: replace unified-hierarchy.txt with a proper cgroup v2 documentation cgroup: rename Documentation/cgroups/ to Documentation/cgroup-legacy/ cgroup: replace __DEVEL__sane_behavior with cgroup2 fs type

- Add swap management feature to memory resource controller. When you

- when you disable this, memory resource controller has no cares to
- usage of swap...a process can exhaust all of the swap. This extension
- is useful when you want to avoid exhaustion swap but this itself
- adds more overheads and consumes memory for remembering information.
- Especially if you use 32bit system or small memory system, please
- be careful about enabling this. When memory resource controller
- is disabled by boot option, this will be automatically disabled and
- there will be no overhead from this. Even when you set this config=y,
- if boot option "swapaccount=0" is set, swap will not be accounted.
- Now, memory usage of swap_cgroup is 2 bytes per entry. If swap page
- size is 4096bytes, 512k per 1Gbytes of swap.
