Well the next step was to create a cgroup with those processors and
suddenly load balancing worked again.

This is all pretty confusing stuff. I would rather get rid of isolcpus and
rely on the process affinities set to a single processor, and the removal
of the this processor from all other processes as a sufficient.

I think this already does the right thing. What is mentioned in the isolcpus
documentation is a worry about "suboptimal scheduler performance".

Could we address that issue (if it is still there) and then get rid of
isolcpus?
