cgroups: read-write lock CLONE_THREAD forking per threadgroup
Ben Blum [Thu, 26 May 2011 23:25:18 +0000 (16:25 -0700)]
Adds functionality to read/write lock CLONE_THREAD fork()ing per-threadgroup

Add an rwsem that lives in a threadgroup's signal_struct that's taken for
reading in the fork path, under CONFIG_CGROUPS.  If another part of the
kernel later wants to use such a locking mechanism, the CONFIG_CGROUPS
ifdefs should be changed to a higher-up flag that CGROUPS and the other
system would both depend on.

This is a pre-patch for cgroup-procs-write.patch.
