    Ok, I agree on this.

    In the end, a single limit is probably better. So, I'll leave rt_bandwidth
    at its default value and make dl_bandwidth a sort of sub-quota of it.
    To give the user an out-of-the-box usable system, I could raise dl_bandwith
    to, let's say, 40% (of 95%). Thus, in the default scenario, the user will
    be allowed to create _rt tasks up to 57% and _dl tasks up to 38% of the
    system capacity, sounds reasonable?

    Thanks and regards,

    - Juri
