Hi, Vatsa

Thanks for your reply :)

That's right, if no children group, 'reweight_entity' won't be called, so I have
created a cpuset group under root group named 'rg1', and created a memory group
under 'rg1' named 'sub', I attached the current shell to the 'sub' cgroup.
But I haven't changed any param under the new cgroup, don't know whether that will
cause some trouble or not? I suppose it could using some default value...

Thanks for your suggestion, now I see that only using 1 children group is really
not enough, I think I should try another round of test with kernbench, and also
I was suggested to use oprofile to trace the 'reweight_entity', wish I can get
some real proof from them.
