    I ran the same tests, booted the machine with mem=1700M and maxcpus=2

    Here is what I see with

    A has a swapout of 344M and B has not swapout at all, since B is
    always under its soft limit. vm.swappiness is set to 60

    I think the above is more along the lines of the expected functional behaviour.
