This appears completely backwards to me. Attaching things like this to a
TTY is just wrong, because normally we don't have a single TTY around on
most graphical sessions.
The kernel doesn't really have a notion of what a "session" is (only the
audit subsystem kinda has), but if this grouping behaviour is supposed
to be bound to a session, then attaching it to a TTY is a pretty shitty
Dhaval Giani pointed out to me that the same can be done from userspace
simply by creating a cgroup for each session in the cpu hierarchy. Turns
out systemd actually does pretty much that, except in the named systemd
hierarchy. It is trivial modification to create a group in both hierarchies.
