It is no problem that you picked these up for testing. But
don't merge them yet, please.

Suresh's underlying problem with the unnecessary sched domains
is a failing of sched-balance-exec and sched-balance-fork, which
I am working on now.

Removing unnecessary domains is a nice optimisation, but just
needs to account for a few more flags before declaring that a
domain is unnecessary (not to mention this probably breaks if
isolcpus= is used). I have made some modifications to the patch
to fix these problems.

Lastly, I'd like to be a bit less intrusive with pinned task
handling improvements. I think we can do this while still being
effective in preventing livelocks.

I will keep you posted with regards to the various scheduler
