How about lazy migration? Mark a group as to move when the kernel sees
it next for scheduling. We'll still need synchronization, but we can
amortize the cost. I've not tried it yet. BTW, we have quite a bit of
logic in libcgroup to deal with migration problems, specially during
classification, which Kenichi has added. We needed timestamping to get
correct migration working during classification.
