I tested it to some extent. I was not able to test it on buildroot uclibc:
$ ss -a --cgroup # I put debugging printf
ss.c:3336 inet_show_sock(): tb[INET_DIAG_CGROUP_ID]: (nil), INET_DIAG_CGROUP_ID: 21

I tried mount both cgroup (with cgroupfs-mount) and cgroup2 (using mount).

But it's hard to trigger this code also on regular linux distro with glibc:

$ ss --cgroup -a >/dev/null
Failed to open cgroup2 by ID
Failed to open cgroup2 by ID
Failed to open cgroup2 by ID
Failed to open cgroup2 by ID
Failed to open cgroup2 by ID
Failed to open cgroup2 by ID

Debugging when replacing glibc wrapper with these functions calling raw syscall
it works the same (i.e. "Failed to open cgroup2 by ID")

Tested-by: Petr Vorel <>
(to my previous Reviewed-by: tag).

Hope David Ahern send his patch for dependency to configure,
as his fragment [1] LGTM.

Kind regards,
