    SubjectRe: [CFS Bandwidth Control v4 3/7] sched: throttle cfs_rq entities which exceed their local quota
    * Paul Turner <> [2011-02-15 19:18:34]:

    > In account_cfs_rq_quota() (via update_curr()) we track consumption versus a
    > cfs_rq's local quota and whether there is global quota available to continue
    > enabling it in the event we run out.
    > This patch adds the required support for the latter case, throttling entities
    > until quota is available to run. Throttling dequeues the entity in question
    > and sends a reschedule to the owning cpu so that it can be evicted.
    > The following restrictions apply to a throttled cfs_rq:
    > - It is dequeued from sched_entity hierarchy and restricted from being
    > re-enqueued. This means that new/waking children of this entity will be
    > queued up to it, but not past it.
    > - It does not contribute to weight calculations in tg_shares_up
    > - In the case that the cfs_rq of the cpu we are trying to pull from is throttled
    > it is is ignored by the loadbalancer in __load_balance_fair() and
    > move_one_task_fair().
