I myself don't use them, but this goes from CRIU project. We try to dump and to restore
every configuration that people may use. Sometimes they configure RT parameters of cpu
cgroup, and criu has to restore them as they was at the moment of dump. So, this is the place,
where we met the hard lockup. I can't say, what forces people to use nested cpu cgroup
for RT...

From the point of criu project, if you delete them, this will decrease
the number of essence we need to support, so I'm not against that :D

Seriously speaking, it's a surprise for me, that they are broken. It seemed,
everything is nice from RT POV: throttling, boosting, PI...
