Ah, we should be able to find this by looking at the cpuset cgroup
information. The cpuset cgroup knows the available cpumask of this task,
which we can translate to the correct root domain in two separate ways
(either run up the cpuset cgroup hierarchy and find the highest domain
with balancing enabled, or look at whatever the rq->rd is for any one of
the allowed CPUs of the immediate cgroup this task belongs to).
