It's a scheduling configuration in which you restrict tasks to run in
disjoint subsets of system CPUs. Translated to what we have, it's what
you get when you create exclusive cpusets (each one gets a rd) and
associate tasks to them.

My concern in what above is that you may end up breaking this setup
if you don't consider the sd->span when one of the CPUs of your
cpuset is off. But, Pang Xunlei patches may solve this, I still have to
check :/.
