3) if you nest them too deep you're too going to see similar funnies.

Too sodding bad gcc messed up unsigned long long for LP64 mode, so we're
stuck with 64bit fixed point math where otherwise we could have used
128bit things.

Also, I don't really care much about fairness vs affinity, if you're
going to constrain the load-balancer and make his life impossible by
using affinities you get to keep the pieces.

But you've got a point, since you can probably see the same issue (1)
with cpusets, and that is because the whole cpu-controller vs cpusets
thing was done wrong.

Someone needs to fix that if they really care.
