I don't understand the reason mentioned here:

IMHO, a write to a child's (tg1/tg11) cpu.rt_runtime_us can fail if the
value is restricted by the parents value:

root@juno:/sys/fs/cgroup/cpu# cat cpu.rt_*
1000000
950000
root@juno:/sys/fs/cgroup/cpu# cat tg1/cpu.rt_*
1000000
0
root@juno:/sys/fs/cgroup/cpu# cat tg1/tg11/cpu.rt_*
1000000
0
root@juno:/sys/fs/cgroup/cpu# echo 950000 > tg1/tg11/cpu.rt_runtime_us
-bash: echo: write error: Invalid argument
root@juno:/sys/fs/cgroup/cpu# echo 950000 > tg1/cpu.rt_runtime_us
root@juno:/sys/fs/cgroup/cpu# echo 950000 > tg1/tg11/cpu.rt_runtime_us
root@juno:/sys/fs/cgroup/cpu#

I assume here that the cpu.util.{min,max} of the child will not be used
any more because the 'effective' counterparts are taken instead.

I wonder if this propagation not been provided with only
cpu.util.{min,max}?
