Not too hard to make the #ifdef'ery go away I'd guess.

Why do we bother at all when there's infinite time? Shouldn't the action
that sets it to infinite also make cfs_rq->quota_assinged to to
RUNTIME_INF, in which case the below check will make it all go away?

Also, shouldn't this all try and steal time from other cpus when the
global limit ran out? Suppose you have say 24 cpus, and you had a short
burst where all 24 cpus had some runtime, so you distribute 240ms. But
23 of those cpus only ran for 0.5ms, leaving 23.5ms of unused time on 23
cpus while your one active cpu will then throttle.

I would much rather see all the accounting tight first and optimize
later than start with leaky stuff and try and plug holes later.

So why isn't this hierarchical?, also all this positive quota stuff
looks weird, why not decrement and try to supplement when negative?
