v8: - Remove cpuset.cpus.isolated and add a new cpuset.sched.domain flag and rework the code accordingly.
v7: - Add a root-only cpuset.cpus.isolated control file for CPU isolation. - Enforce that load_balancing can only be turned off on cpusets with CPUs from the isolated list. - Update sched domain generation to allow cpusets with CPUs only from the isolated CPU list to be in separate root domains. v6: - Hide cpuset control knobs in root cgroup. - Rename effective_cpus and effective_mems to cpus.effective and mems.effective respectively. - Remove cpuset.flags and add cpuset.sched_load_balance instead as the behavior of sched_load_balance has changed and so is not a simple flag. - Update cgroup-v2.txt accordingly. v5: - Add patch 2 to provide the cpuset.flags control knob for the sched_load_balance flag which should be the only feature that is essential as a replacement of the "isolcpus" kernel boot parameter. v4: - Further minimize the feature set by removing the flags control knob. v3: - Further trim the additional features down to just memory_migrate. - Update Documentation/cgroup-v2.txt. v6 patch: https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/3/21/530 v7 patch: https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/4/19/448 The purpose of this patchset is to provide a basic set of cpuset control files for cgroup v2. This basic set includes the non-root "cpus", "mems", "sched.load_balance" and "sched.domain". The "cpus.effective" and "mems.effective" will appear in all cpuset-enabled cgroups. The new control file that is unique to v2 is "sched.domain". It is a boolean flag file that designates if a cgroup is a scheduling domain with its own set of unique list of CPUs from scheduling perspective disjointed from other scheduling domains. The root cgroup is always a scheduling domain. Multiple levels of scheduling domains are supported with some limitations. So a container scheduling domain root can behave like a real root. When a scheduling domain cgroup is removed, its list of exclusive CPUs will be returned to the parent's cpus.effective automatically. The "sched.load_balance" flag can only be changed in a scheduling domain. with no child cpuset-enabled cgroups. This patchset supports isolated CPUs in a child scheduling domain with load balancing off. It also allows easy setup of multiple scheduling domains without requiring the trick of turning load balancing off in the root cgroup. This patchset does not exclude the possibility of adding more features in the future after careful consideration. Patch 1 enables cpuset in cgroup v2 with cpus, mems and their effective counterparts. Patch 2 adds a new "sched.domain" control file for setting up multiple scheduling domains. A scheduling domain implies cpu_exclusive. Patch 3 adds a "sched.load_balance" flag to turn off load balancing in a scheduling domain. Patch 4 updates the scheduling domain genaration code to work with the new scheduling domain feature. Patch 5 exposes cpus.effective and mems.effective to the root cgroup as enabling child scheduling domains will take CPUs away from the root cgroup. So it will be nice to monitor what CPUs are left there. Patch 6 enables the printing the debug information about scheduling domain generation.
