AFAICS, there are code in cpuset.c that disallows the an non-child node 
to hold tasks, but the check doesn't cover all the possible cases. I 
remembered that I was able to create such a scenario without using 
threaded domains. That is why I put in this conditional check. It has 
nothing to do with the use of threaded domains.

This check is supposed to prevent a task to be moved to a leaf cpuset 
partition with just offlined cpus and hence no effective cpu. A possible 
alternative is to force the partition to become invalid, but I think not 
allowing the move is easier until one or more offlined cpus are onlined.

Cheers,
Longman
