    SubjectRe: [RFC] cpuset: remove sched domain hooks from cpusets
    How about something like use_cpus_exclusive flag in cpuset?

    And whenever a child cpuset sets this use_cpus_exclusive flag, remove
    those set of child cpuset cpus from parent cpuset and also from the
    tasks which were running in the parent cpuset. We can probably allow this
    to happen as long as parent cpuset has atleast one cpu.

    And if this use_cpus_exclusive flag is cleared in cpuset, its pool of cpus will
    be returned to the parent. We can perhaps have cpus_owned inaddition to
    cpus_allowed to reflect what is being exclusively used
    and owned(which combines all the exclusive cpus used by the parent and children)

    So effectively, a sched domain parition will get defined for each
    cpuset having 'use_cpus_exclusive'.

    And this is mostly inline with what anyone can expect from exclusive
    cpu usage in a cpuset right?

    Job manager/administrator/owner of the cpusets can set/reset the flags
    depending on what cpusets/jobs are active.

    Paul will this address your needs?
