    Question for Steven:

    What locks are held when cpuset_rt_set_overload() is called?

    Questions for Paul Menage:

    Does 'tsk' need to be locked for the above task_cs() call?

    Background concern -- one of the things that I like to think has
    allowed cpusets to be useful to others is the careful documentation
    of its locking requirements. I hope that the cgroup infrastructure,
    and the portions of the cpuset code, such as this task_cs() call,
    that were adapted to work with cgroups, have their locking needs
    documented as well. I suspect that there is still some presence of
    stale cpuset locking comments, and perhaps an absence of complete
    comments on new cgroup locking needs. My recollection is that this
    is already on your todo list -- I'm just being annoying here ;).

    I won't rest till it's the best ...
