+The Miscellaneous cgroup provides the resource limiting and tracking
+mechanism for the scalar resources which cannot be abstracted like the other
+cgroup resources. Controller is enabled by the CONFIG_CGROUP_MISC config
+option.
+
+The first two resources added to the miscellaneous controller are Secure
+Encrypted Virtualization (SEV) ASIDs and SEV - Encrypted State (SEV-ES) ASIDs.
+These limited ASIDs are used for encrypting virtual machines memory on the AMD
+platform.
+
+Misc Interface Files
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+Miscellaneous controller provides 3 interface files:
+
+  misc.capacity
+        A read-only flat-keyed file shown only in the root cgroup.  It shows
+        miscellaneous scalar resources available on the platform along with
+        their quantities::
+
+	  $ cat misc.capacity
+	  sev 50
+	  sev_es 10
+
+  misc.current
+        A read-only flat-keyed file shown in the non-root cgroups.  It shows
+        the current usage of the resources in the cgroup and its children.::
+
+	  $ cat misc.current
+	  sev 3
+	  sev_es 0
+
+  misc.max
+        A read-write flat-keyed file shown in the non root cgroups. Allowed
+        maximum usage of the resources in the cgroup and its children.::
+
+	  $ cat misc.max
+	  sev max
+	  sev_es 4
+
+	Limit can be set by::
+
+	  # echo sev 1 > misc.max
+
+	Limit can be set to max by::
+
+	  # echo sev max > misc.max
+
+        Limits can be set higher than the capacity value in the misc.capacity
+        file.
+
+Migration and Ownership
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+A miscellaneous scalar resource is charged to the cgroup in which it is used
+first, and stays charged to that cgroup until that resource is freed. Migrating
+a process to a different cgroup does not move the charge to the destination
+cgroup where the process has moved.
