Subject[RFC 60/60] cosched: Add command line argument to enable coscheduling
Date
Add a new command line argument cosched_max_level=<n>, which allows
enabling coscheduling at boot. The number corresponds to the scheduling
domain up to which coscheduling can later be enabled for cgroups.

For example, to enable coscheduling of cgroups at SMT level, one would
specify cosched_max_level=1.

The use of symbolic names (like off, core, socket, system) is currently
not possible, but could be added. However, to force coscheduling at up
to system level not knowing the scheduling domain topology in advance,
it is possible to just specify a too large number. It will be clamped
transparently to system level.
