Yes, because it doesn't make sense to have a cpu in one cpuset that has
loading balance off while, at the same time, in another cpuset with load
balancing turned on. This restriction is there to make sure that the
above condition will not happen. I may be wrong if there is a realistic
use case where the above condition is desired.
