Good explanation - thanks.

In short, the proposal was to use the task partition defined by cpusets
to define CFS task-groups, until the real process containers are
available.

Or, I see in the next message, Ingo responding favorably to your
alternative, using task uid's to partition the tasks into CFS
task-groups.

Yeah, Ingo's preference for using uid's (or gid's ??) sounds right to
me - a sustainable API.

Wouldn't want to be adding a cpuset API for a single 2.6.N release.

... gid's -- why not?
