OK, I've done some tests and the result is that Lennart's approach seems
to work best. It also _feels_ better interactively compared to the
vanilla kernel and in-kernel cgrougs on my machine. Also it's really
nice to have an interface to actually see what is going on. With the
kernel patch you're totally in the dark about what is going on right
now.

Here are some numbers all recorded while running a make -j4 job in one
shell.

perf sched record sleep 30
perf trace -s /usr/libexec/perf-core/scripts/perl/wakeup-latency.pl :

vanilla kernel without cgroups:
total_wakeups: 44306
avg_wakeup_latency (ns): 36784
min_wakeup_latency (ns): 0
max_wakeup_latency (ns): 9378852

with in-kernel patch:
total_wakeups: 43836
avg_wakeup_latency (ns): 67607
min_wakeup_latency (ns): 0
max_wakeup_latency (ns): 8983036

with Lennart's approach:
total_wakeups: 51070
avg_wakeup_latency (ns): 29047
min_wakeup_latency (ns): 0
max_wakeup_latency (ns): 10008237

perf record -a -e sched:sched_switch -e sched:sched_wakeup sleep 10
perf trace -s /usr/libexec/perf-core/scripts/perl/wakeup-latency.pl :

without cgroups:
total_wakeups: 13195
avg_wakeup_latency (ns): 48484
min_wakeup_latency (ns): 0
max_wakeup_latency (ns): 8722497

with in-kernel approach:
total_wakeups: 14106
avg_wakeup_latency (ns): 92532
min_wakeup_latency (ns): 20
max_wakeup_latency (ns): 5642393

Lennart's approach:
total_wakeups: 22215
avg_wakeup_latency (ns): 24118
min_wakeup_latency (ns): 0
max_wakeup_latency (ns): 8001142
