Hmm..., I went through the subsequent patches, and I think this one

- 4041eeb8f3 sched/fair: don't migrate task if cookie not match

is probably the major cause, can you please revert this one to see
if the problem is gone?

From what I can tell, if 16 threads in cgB occupied 8 cores, this
patch prevents any thread in cgA from migrating when load balance
is triggered, and yes, cpu.shares is ignored at this point.
