I am wondering why this is not happening:

When the low weight task group has exceeded its cfs allocation during a cfs period, the task group
should be throttled. In that case, the CPU cores that the low
weight task group occupies will become idle, and allow load balance from the
overloaded CPUs for the high weight task group to migrate over.
