The examples are quite generic. Do cgroup v2 controls really prevent
handling such workloads appropriately?

Besides that, note that per-cgroup swappiness as used in v1 cannot be
simply transferred into v2 because, it's a concept that doesn't take
into account cgroup hierarchies (how would parent's swappiness affect
children? what would swappiness on inner nodes mean?).
