Valentin, sorry for my tardy reply, but there are always so many things
to do.

Thanks for your patient explanation, and the picture is intuitive
and clear. Indeed, the group in lowest domain only contains one CPU, and
the only CPU in the first group should be the rq's CPU. So, I wonder if
we can do like this?
