What VM overhead? Are you talking about the memcg nonsense? That's
entirely optional, you don't need to either build that or enable it.

And if we ever get rid of that multiple hierarchy nonsense I don't see a
reason to get rid of cpuset at all. The only reason to want to replace
it is to avoid the dis-joint-ness it has with the cpu controller (and
possible the memcg one).
