Something like this would come quite handy.

And the only way to figure out inside cgroupns.

I was thinking of memory.max.effective (and others).

- no need to (possibly flush) stats when reading memory.stat
- can be generalized also for pids controller (and other "limiting" controllers) 
- analogous to precedent of cpuset.cpus.effective

Whereas, using v1 approach in v2:
- memory.stat mixes true stats and limits,
- memmory.stat is hierarchical by default, no need for the prefix.

What do you think of the separate .effective file(s)?
