Yes. I forgot to point out that if we do change cpusets to generate sched
domain per cpu we want to make sure that balancer is still a noop just like it
is today with the null sched domain.

I think 'root' in this case is a bit of a misnomer. What I meant is that each
non-balanced cpu would be in a separate sched domain.
