Subject[PATCH v13 00/11] cpuset: Enable cpuset controller in default hierarchy
- A major rewrite of the partition code so that there will be no
auto-turning off anymore. Instead, the partition root can enter into
an error state that can be restored back to a partition root later on.
- Patches 1 and 9 are the same as previous version, the rests are
either new or substantially revised.

- Take out the debugging patch to print partitions.
- Add a patch to force turning off partition flag if newly modified CPU
list doesn't meet the requirement of being a partition root.
- Remove some unneeded checking code in update_reserved_cpumask().

- Change the "domain_root" name to "partition" as suggested by Peter and
update the documentation and code accordingly.
- Remove the dying cgroup check in update_reserved_cpus() as the check
may not be needed after all.
- Document the effect of losing CPU affinity after offling all the cpus
in a partition.
- There is no other major code changes in this version.

- Remove the cpuset.sched.load_balance patch for now as it may not
be that useful.
- Break the large patch 2 into smaller patches to make them a bit
easier to review.
- Test and fix issues related to changing "cpuset.cpus" and cpu
online/offline in a domain root.
- Rename isolated_cpus to reserved_cpus as this cpumask holds CPUs
reserved for child sched domains.
- Rework the scheduling domain debug printing code in the last patch.
- Document update to the newly moved

v10 patch:
v11 patch:
v12 patch:

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" and "sched.partition". The "cpus.effective" and "mems.effective"
will appear in all cpuset-enabled cgroups.

The new control file that is unique to v2 is "sched.partition". It is
a tristate flag file that designates if a cgroup is the root of a new
scheduling domain or partition with its own set of unique list of CPUs
from scheduling perspective disjointed from other partitions. An user
can write only "1" or "0" into this file to turn on and off partition root.
Depending on circumstances, a partition root may become erroneous and has
a flag value of -1. However, if condition becomes favorable again, it can
be changed back to a partition root automatically.

The root cgroup is always a partition root. Multiple levels of partitions
are supported with some limitations. So a container partition root can
behave like a real root.

When a partition root cgroup is removed, its list of exclusive CPUs
will be returned back to the parent's cpus.effective automatically.

A container root can be a partition root with sub-partitions
created underneath it. One difference from the real root is that the
"cpuset.sched.partition" flag isn't present in the real root, but is
present in a container root. This is also true for other cpuset control
files as well as those from the other controllers. This is a general
issue that is not going to be addressed here in this patchset.

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

Patch 2 defines new data structures to support partitioning.

Patch 3 simplifies the allocation and freeing of cpumasks in the cpuset
code and prepares for use by subsequent patches.

Patch 4 adds a new "sched.partition" control file for setting up multiple
scheduling domains or partitions. A partition root implies cpu_exclusive.

Patch 5 makes new "sched.partition" file to have a new error value of -1
which indicates that the partition root enters into an erroneous state
where some of the constraints of a partition root (like cpu_exclusive)
will still hold but it is not a real partition root anymore. This allows
the cpuset to change back to a partition root later on automatically
if the conditions become favorable again.

Patch 6 adds tracking of the number of cpusets that use the parent's
effective_cpus in order to make sure that those cpusets will be properly
updated if their parents effective cpus changes because of changes in
sibling partitions.

Patch 7 makes the hotplug code deal with partition root properly.

Patch 8 updates the scheduling domain genaration code to work with
the new partition feature.

Patch 9 exposes cpus.effective and mems.effective to the root cgroup
as enabling child partitions will take CPUs away from the root cgroup.
So it will be nice to monitor what CPUs are left there.

Patch 10 updates the cgroup v2 documentation file with information
about the new "sched.partition" file.

Patch 11 adds a new read-only "cpus.subpartitions" file that list the
CPUs in the subparts_cpus mask in the cpuset data structure when the
command line option "cgroup_debug" is specified. This is mostly used
for debugging and verification purposes.

A test script with various cpuset configurations was run on both regular
and debug kernels with this patchset applied to verify that the cpusets
behaved appropriate without unexpected error.
