Hrm. Sounds very much like the typical v1 setup today..

peons vips

...with v2 root effectively shrinking to become the v1 "peons" set
*rd/sd/sd_llc wise only* when you poke /cpuset.cpus.isolated, but still
actually spanning all CPUs. True?

If so, a user would also still have to create a real "peons" subset as
in v1 and migrate everything not nailed to the floor into it for
containment, else any task can be placed or place itself anywhere in
the box, or merely wake to find itself sitting on it's previous, but
now vip turf CPU.
