Subject[ RFC, PATCH 5/5 ] CPU controller - interface with cpusets

A controller cannot live in isolation. *somebody* needs to tell it about
events like new-task-group creation, destruction of existing group,
assignment of bandwidth and finally movement of tasks between task-groups.

We also need *some* interface for grouping tasks and assigning bandwidth
to the task-groups. cpusets is chosen as this interface for now.

This patch makes some extension to cpusets as below:

- Every cpuset directory has two new files - meter_cpu, cpu_quota
- Writing '1' into 'meter_cpu' marks the cpuset as "metered" i.e
tasks in this cpuset and its child cpusets will have their CPU
usage controlled by the controller as per the quota settings
mentioned in 'cpu_quota'.
- Writing a number between 0-100 into 'cpu_quota' file of a metered
cpuset assigns corresponding bandwidth for all tasks in the
cpuset (task-group).
- Only cpusets marked as "exclusive" and not having any child cpusets
can be metered.
- Metered cpusets cannot have grand-children!

Metered cpusets was discussed elaborately at:

http://lkml.org/lkml/2005/9/26/58

This patch was inspired from those discussions and is a subset of the features
provided in the earlier patch.

As an example, follow these steps to create metered cpusets:


# cd /dev
# mkdir cpuset
# mount -t cpuset cpuset cpuset
# cd cpuset
# mkdir grp_a
# cd grp_a
# /bin/echo 1 > cpus # assign CPU 1 for this cpuset
# /bin/echo 0 > mems # assign node 0 for this cpuset
# /bin/echo 1 > cpu_exclusive
# /bin/echo 1 > meter_cpu
# mkdir very_imp_grp
# Assign 80% bandwidth to this group
# /bin/echo 80 > very_imp_grp/cpu_quota
# echo $apache_webserver_pid > very_imp_grp/tasks
# mkdir less_imp_grp
# Assign 5% bandwidth to this group
# /bin/echo 5 > less_imp_grp/cpu_quota
# echo $mozilla_browser_pid > less_imp_grp/tasks
