As far as I understand, Tejun has some concern about the way that
partitioning works is inconsistent with how other resources are being
managed by cgroup v2 controllers. I adds an incremental patch to
temporarily disable the creation of partition below the first level
children to buy us time so that we can reach a compromise later on what
to do. We can always add features, but taking away features after they
are made available will be hard.

I am fine either way. It is up to you and Tejun to figure out what
should be made available to the users.
