The formatting is quite ugly and I don't see why this needs to be multiple
lines and have these uppercase prefixes.

A task can only be part of one control group and of one monitoring group
which is associated to the control group. So just providing:

 1)   ""
 2)   "/"
 3)   "/mon_groups/mon0"
 4)   "/group0"
 5)   "/group0/mon_groups/mon1"

is simple and clear enough, i.e.:

#1: Resctrl is not available

#2: Task is part of the root group, task not associated to any monitoring

#3: Task is part of the root group and monitoring group mon0

#4: Task is part of control group group0, task not associated to any
    monitoring group

#5: Task is part of control group group0 and monitoring group mon1
