I expect the 8 cgA tasks to spread on each core, instead of occupying
4 cores/8 hw threads. If they stay on 4 cores/8 hw threads, than on the
core level, these cores' load would be much higher than other cores
which are running cgB's tasks, this doesn't look right to me.

I think the end result should be: each core has two tasks queued, one
cgA task and one cgB task(to maintain load balance on the core level).
The two tasks are queued on different hw thread, with cgA's task runs
most of the time on one thread and cgB's task being forced idle most
of the time on the other thread.
