    That behavior matches exactly with scheduling of normal tasks and
    cgroups with default cpu.shares, but doesn't match too well with what
    I can see of the posix SCHED_RR description, which suggests all the
    SCHED_RR threads go into a single queue. I was just curious if the
    behavior my patch restored was correct, since it can't be adjusted by
    tweaking any parameters like cpu.shares.
