Hi all,

i want to run a few qemu VMs inside VE0. Just wonder how to set
fairsched properties 
for a single process?

	- howto create a new faisched group (for the qemu process)?
	- howto assign weight/rate

or is that not possible at all?

OK, basically found the syscall interface in kernel/fairsched.c

But how do I find out the syscall numbers, i.e how do I 
call sys_fairsched_mknod() with userspace syscall()

check vzctl sources. it calls other OVZ-specific syscalls by their numbers,
like sys_setluid, sys_setublimit etc.

For creating fairsched node you'll need to call fairsched_mknod first, then move
the process to this node using fairsched_mvpr

OK, I wrote a small (perl) script to test those syscalls, and everything
work as expected, for example:

..
fairsched_mknod (0, 500, 400);
fairsched_vcpus (400, 1);
set_cpulimit (400, 25);
fairsched_mvpr ($$, 400);
fork_and_do_something(); # runs with 25% cpu
wait
fairsched_rmnod (400);
..

work perfectly.

But when I call fairsched_rmnod(400) from another process while there is
still a process running inside 400 the system freezes. I get a kernel
panic somewhere inside move_task_off_dead_cpu.

any idea how to fix that?

node should be deleted normally only when no processes left.
it's possible to fix syscall to return an error when node is non-empty...

Ok, will try make sure that no processes left. But I thing the syscall
should be fixed too.

Please can you give me a hint where i can find the list of
processes associated with a fairsched node?

AFAIR the only way is to take tasklist_lock
and check for tasks having vsched == your-node-vsched.
