The reason I liked /dev/cgroup was because cpusets could be
mounted at /dev/cpuset or /dev/cgroup/cpuset. My concern with /cgroup
is that a ls "/" now becomes larger in size. But I'll take your vote
for it as +1 for /cgroup.

/dev/pts is a decent precedent for doing it under /dev, although it does
deal with actual devices. cgroups do not.

There is also /dev/shm, but IMHO that's not reason to pollute /dev with filesystems that are not devices.
