The behavior is silly but consistent in that it doesn't allow empty active
cpusets and it has been like that for many many years now.

Nobody is saying it's a good behavior (hence the change in cgroup2) and there
are situations where changing things like this is justifiable, but, here:

* The proposed change makes the interface inconsistent and does so
unconditionally on what is now a mostly legacy interface.

* There already is a newer version of the interface which includes the
desired behavior.

* I forgot but as Waiman pointed out, you can even opt-in to the new
behavior, which is more comprehensive without the inconsitencies,
while staying on cgroup1.
