    SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/5] SUBCPUSETS: a resource control functionality using CPUSETS

    Interesting implementation of resource controls. Cross posting this
    to ckrm-tech as well. I am sure CKRM folks have something to say...

    Any thoughts about how you want to add more resource control features
    on top of/in addition to this setup. (Such as memory etc)

    I agree with Paul here. You would want to build your controllers
    on top of exclusive cpusets to keep things sane.

    I think it makes more sense to add this functionality directly as part
    of the existing cpusets instead of creating further leaf cpusets (or subcpusets
    as you call it) where we can specify resource control parameters. I think that
    approach would be much more intuitive and simple to work with rather than
    what you have currently.
