Subject[PATCH] docs: cgroup-v1: Document the cpuset_v2_mode mount option
The cpuset in cgroup v1 accepts a special "cpuset_v2_mode" mount
option that make cpuset.cpus and cpuset.mems behave more like those in
cgroup v2. Document it to make other people more aware of this feature
that can be useful in some circumstances.

+The cpuset.effective_cpus and cpuset.effective_mems files are
+normally read-only copies of cpuset.cpus and cpuset.mems files
+respectively. If the cpuset cgroup filesystem is mounted with the
+special "cpuset_v2_mode" option, the behavior of these files will become
+similar to the corresponding files in cpuset v2. In other words, hotplug
+events will not change cpuset.cpus and cpuset.mems. Those events will
+only affect cpuset.effective_cpus and cpuset.effective_mems which show
+the actual cpus and memory nodes that are currently used by this cpuset.
+See Documentation/admin-guide/cgroup-v2.rst for more information about
+cpuset v2 behavior.
