I do not know the cgroup / cpuset code too much, so I have no useful
comments on your patches... But I think this patchset is a nice
improvemnt respect to the current situation.

I think I introduced this bug with my reclaiming patches, so I am
interested.
When a cpu is hot-plugged out, which code in the kernel is responsible
for migrating the tasks that are executing on such CPU? I was sure I
was handling all the relevant codepaths, but this bug clearly shows
that I was wrong.
