Ok, I ran latest tip/master which has your patches:

# mkdir p0 p1
# echo "L3:0=00fff;1=ff000\nMB:0=50;1=50" > /sys/fs/resctrl/p0/schemata
bash: echo: write error: Invalid argument
# cat info/last_cmd_status
non-hex character in mask ff000\nMB:0=50

<--- I think this needs to be fixed in the doc examples to say:

echo -e "L3:0=00fff;1=ff000\nMB:0=50;1=50" > /sys/fs/resctrl/p0/schemata

i.e., you need to supply -e in order to interpret backslash chars.

# echo -e "L3:0=00fff;1=ff000\nMB:0=50;1=50" > /sys/fs/resctrl/p0/schemata
bash: echo: write error: Invalid argument
# cat info/last_cmd_status
unknown/unsupported resource name 'MB'

<--- Yap, much better.

# mkdir c1
# cat c1/schemata
L3:0=fffff;1=fffff
# echo "L3:0=3;1=3" > c1/schemata
# cat info/last_cmd_status
ok
# echo 1 > c1/tasks
# cat info/last_cmd_status
ok
#

Yap, thanks for doing this!
