Yes, I think it should work, if we put the pid of the forked process in cgroups.

Other child threads should go automaticaly to the parent cgroup.
I have done tests with hotplug virtio-net with vhost threads, or iothread drive, 
and their threads pid go to the cgroup.

Not tested but what about this: 

# in child 
put current pid into cgroup 
exec kvm 

# parent 

<= wouldn't this put all threads kvm creates automatically into the 
right cgroup?
