SubjectRFC [patch] sched,cgroup_sched: convince RT_GROUP_SCHED throttle to work
From
Date
Greetings,

I'm having trouble with RT_GROUP_SCHED throttle kicking in and staying
engaged (timer troubles). Either groups execute one after the other
(frob timer above you), or bandwidth is wrong, or the reason I started
squabbling with this thing in the first place happens, one or the other
group gets stuck, even with only two groups, with the root task group
throttled, and the victim is marooned until I kill the cgroup setup. If
(say) grp1 starts first, grp2 is screwed, or the other way around.

With this patch, the thing appears to work perfectly, but it doesn't
look correct, since I'm futzing with ->rt_time where I should not.

Not so pretty ascii-art:

/----------/system cpu 0-2, rt 300000-----/foo cpu 2, rt 100000
\
\
\----/rtcpus cpu 3, rt 300000---\---/bar cpu 3, rt 100000
\
\-/baz cpu 3, rt 100000
It only needs to be two groups, grp1 containing most of the system, the
other rt only. With the patch, the above setup works (last setup I
prodded box with), and bandwidth looked fine, twiddle budgets or not.

I just happened to notice the throttle wasn't doing it's thing right
after discovering that isolcpus is busted with RT_GROUP_SCHED. Thought
I should probably beat on it a little. The darn thing beat me back :)
