To add a bit, you won't be solving any problem by adding more locks
here. cpuset wants to initiate task cgroup migration. It doesn't
matter how many locks cgroup uses internally. You'll have to grab
them all anyway to do that. It's not a problem caused by granularity
of cgroup_lock at all, so there just isn't any logic in dividing locks
for this. So, again, please don't go that direction. What we need to
do is isolating subsystem locking and implementation from cgroup
internals, not complicating cgroup internals even more, and now we
have good enoug API to achieve such isolation.
