It is. My main counter to that would be that it is how cpusets
should always have worked :)

And becomes harder to reason about and review/maintain. I agree

From userspace, I suppose one approach (though note it is racy) to
solving this would be to have udev rules which

. On cpu unplug, record all cgroups which were using that cpu
. on cpu plug, re-add the cpu to all recorded cgroups for that
cpu (if any), as well as to any cgroups marked (in some /etc
file) as using "all" or a percentage of all cpus.
