The Documentation/cgroups.txt file contains the info on how
to write some controller for cgroups subsystem, but even with
this, one need to write quite a lot of code before developing
the core (or copy-n-paste it from some other place).

I propose to put this minimal controller into Documentation
directory to let people copy-n-paste a) from a known place and 
b) a small piece of code.

Besides, many people learn better reading an example rather
than/along with a document.
