I'm still not seeing what the problem with CAT-cgroup is.
socket-1/cpus = $socket-1
tasks = $thread-A
socket-2/cpus = $socket-2
tasks = $thread-B
group-A/bitmap = 0x3F / 0xFF
group-A/tasks = $thread-A
group-B/bitmap = 0xFF / 0xFF
group-B/tasks = $thread-B
That gets you thread-A on socket-1 with 6/8 of the L3 and thread-B on
socket-2 with 8/8 of the L3.
