    Right, so the current rt bandwidth controls go up to 100%, where 100% is
    root_domain wide. That is, the bandwidth usage scale is irrespective of
    the number of cpus.

    If that was the best choice could of course be argued, but since we have
    that, it would be strange to add another set of controls which do not
    conform.
