SubjectRe: CFS Bandwidth Control - Test results of cgroups tasks pinned vs unpinned
[ Sorry for the delayed response, I was out on vacation for the second
half of May until last week -- I've now caught up on email and am
preparing the next posting ]

Thanks for the test-case Kamalesh -- my immediate suspicion is quota
return may not be fine-grained enough (although the numbers provided
are large enough it's possible there's also just a bug).

I have some tools from my own testing I can use to pull this apart,
let me run your work-load and get back to you.
