In our last discussion on v0 patch,
http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1509.1/04331.html

The direction was, that vendor should be able to define their own resources.

When you said "different controller" you meant "different hw vendors", right?
Or you meant, rdma, mem, cpu as controller here?

In this V1 patch, resource is defined by the IB stack and rdma cgroup
is facilitator for same.
By doing so, IB stack modules can define new resource without really
making changes to cgroup.
This design also allows hw vendors to define their own resources which
will be reviewed in rdma mailing list anway.
The idea is different hw versions can have different resource support,
so the whole intention is not about defining different resource but
rather enabling it.
But yes, I equally agree that by doing so, different hw controller
vendors can define different hw resources.
