Dear Michal,
I did not understand your statement. Could you please explain it in more details?

I see that cgroup_mkdir()->cgroup_create() creates new kernfs node for new
sub-directory, and with my patch account memory of kernfs node to memcg
of current process.
Do you think it is incorrect and new kernfs node should be accounted
to memcg of parent cgroup, as mem_cgroup_css_alloc()-> mem_cgroup_alloc() does?
Perhaps you mean that in this case kernfs should not be counted at all,
as almost all neighboring allocations do?

Thank you,
Vasily Averin
