yeaah, as explained in the previous mail, this is in place only if group
scheduling is on since now, but I'll add these bits to non-group
solution, aalready planned that. :-)

yes again, that's what the submitted patch does, which is an arbitrary
choice among all the non-optimal solutions I'm able to think of, as
explained in the first e-mail! :-(

Now, I'm going to give your suggestion of assigning children 0 bandwidth
a shot, and ask the parent (they can't they have no bandwidth!) to give
them some runtime/deadline to make them run.
This also has some issues, I think, but looks more natural... At least
does not affect parent's bandwidth, possibly reducing it to (almost)
0!! :-(
